MICHIGAN CITY | The Washington Park Festival of Lights is held each year in Michigan City during the month of December and continues through the first week of January.
Fes¬ti¬val of Lights Parade and Chili Cook-off kick off the season from 3:30 to 6 p.m. Saturday Dec. 7. The day includes horse-and-buggy rides, hot chocolate and cookies, carolers, a bonfire, and most importantly, the official lighting of the holiday lights.
More than 5 million individual bulbs light up a variety of holiday and traditional displays that are truly a sight to behold!
It is the largest free drive-through light exhibit in the Midwest. This has been an annual event for over 20 years at Washington Park.
