|This year’s event will be the third held at this new location (NOT Waterworks Park) with 100% of the $20.00 per car entry fee going to grant wishes for Iowa kids. Last year it was a great experience and those who attended felt it a unique experience from previous years’ events at Waterworks Park. Kick off your holiday season with friends enjoying the 2.5 mile drive and the over 100 illuminated holiday displays while benefitting a great cause for kids. More info on the event can be found here: https://iowa.wish.org/news-and-events/calendar-of-events/november/event-detail-page
Tickets may be purchased in advance beginning in November at Hy Vee or Casey’s or online now prior to November 1st for a discounted price of $18.00 per car https://app.tikly.co/events/3480.
