Hours will be Monday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Open throughout the holiday season with beautifully and uniquely decorated Christmas trees on display surrounding the world’s longest mineral water bar.

Lane of Lights
The Lane of Lights is located along Lovers Lane in East Valley Park and is open through December 31. The Christmas Committee has created this lighted drive-through holiday display to give families and friends a destination on cold winter evenings. It’s a great way to top off or start an evening out to dinner or the movies, the school holiday performance or your family get-together. Admission by donation. The Christmas Committee partners with local organizations for this fundraising event.
