Stone Hedge Golf Course Sparks Holiday Joy at Festival of Lights 2020

This Year’s Display Features Over 4 Million Lights

Once again, Stone Hedge in Tunkhannock is hosting their famous Festival of Lights. This drive-through Christmas light display takes you on a 2.5-mile ride through the entire golf course. Along the way, you’ll drive through twinkling forests, pass under the arches of the light tunnels and spot plenty of wintry scenes.

The Festival of Lights started in 2017 and has grown bigger and better every year since. This year’s display is nothing short of holiday magic with over 4 million lights and several new additions to the show.  There’s so much to see that the entire experience takes about 30 to 40 minutes.


All Is Merry & Bright



It takes weeks of hard work to transform the greens into a winter wonderland.

This year’s display includes exciting new pieces like the enormous rainbow in the Wizard of Oz section. The crew at Stone Hedge built it themselves with over 3,000 bulbs. They also added a Minions display and expanded their Cars section.

You’ll still see some of your favorite displays from previous years too. No matter what age, everyone always loves themed displays like the Toy Story characters, the Peanuts gang and superheroes. Dinosaurs and zoo animals light up the night, and a Statue of Liberty towers over the patriotic section.

The twinkling river is also back this year, complete with a brand-new kayaker. This display includes thousands of strands of lights stretching all the way down the 18th hole fairway.


S’mores, Shopping, Selfies, & Snacks



Stone Hedge will also have some safe, socially distant activities to enjoy after the show.

A limited amount of local vendors will be set up in the pavilion, and there will be food stands selling seasonal treats. Grab a cup of cocoa and cozy up with some s’mores by the fire pits. And don’t forget to snap some pictures at the photo op area near the clubhouse.

For safety reasons, Stone Hedge will not have train rides or photos with Santa this year. Guests are asked to wear masks and practice social distancing while outside of their cars.


It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas



Plan your visit to this breathtaking display.

Gather up the kids, turn the heat on full blast and take a ride to Stone Hedge for a safe, fun way to celebrate Christmas. The Festival of Lights is open every night through December 31, excluding Christmas Eve. Gates open at 5 p.m.
