65 degree weather in mid-December in Connecticut? You bet we’re taking advantage of that, which is exactly why we went to Lake Compounce’s Holiday Lights Event. What a great event! We went with relatively low expectations and came out completely impressed! The light display is fun to see walking around rather than riding in your car like many other like light shows. Just take a look at this tree!
Also, select child rides are open helping to make the trip even more enjoyable for the little ones. There’s also a North Pole Railway, story time with Mrs. Clause, ice carvers, pictures with Santa, cookie decorating and different nightly entertainment. What’s also great is that you can get a fun array of food with the variety of unique food trucks there including trucks offering gourmet grilled cheese, cupcakes, and poutine. Be sure to stop by Dunkin’ Donuts in the park for a refillable mug to keep yourself warm throughout the night with coffee and hot chocolate.
It was actually such an enjoyable event that we’re considering going back for this upcoming weekend, which is the last weekend! Be sure not to miss out on this! Also, buy your tickets online and save $2. Let us know how you like it!
