Keep That Holiday Spirit Going All Weekend with Dazzling Lights Displays and a Virtual Christmas Classic
Start the holiday weekend with a visit to two of NEPA’s most festive neighborhoods. Visit the famous Peckville Christmas House for a drive-thru, or walk-through experience. Then, make your way to Scranton ‘s South Side for the ever-popular Christmas Light House.
Take a break from the hustle and bustle of opening gifts and holiday ham and enjoy a Christmas evening cruise to several local lights displays. Stop by the Festival of Lights at Stone Hedge Golf Course in Tunkhannock. Check out the Holiday Lights Spectacular at Scranton’s Nay Aug Park. Head over to Marywood University and check out the Light Up Campus Display. Then, roll on down Berwick’s delightful Christmas Boulevard.
Tune in to WVIA-TV to catch Friday and Sunday showings of the Scranton Civic Ballet’s annual performance of The Nutcracker. And, if you still got that shopping bug, stop by the Christmas Village at Knoebels Amusement Resort on Saturday and Sunday.
While you’re at Knoebels on Saturday and Sunday, don’t forget to drive through their Joy Through the Grove holiday lights display. You can also check out the Light the Night drive-thru display at Sugarloaf Golf Club. And, if you’d prefer to take a stroll, do it under the stunning Forest of Lights at Tall Pines Players Club in Friendsville.
