HAMBURG, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Fairgrounds Festival of Lights returns to The Fairgrounds in Hamburg Wednesday.
Organizers say there is a new drive-thru route this year that will consist of over 70 variations of LED light displays, arches and light tunnels. Attendees will enter through South Park Avenue and exit onto McKinley Parkway.
“We wanted to continue to provide a holiday event that is safe and fun for the whole family,” said Jessica Underberg, CEO of the Erie County Agricultural Society.
The Fairgrounds Festival of Lights will be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. each night in December but will be closed December 24 and 25. Tickets are on sale for $20 per vehicle (plus fees) and must be purchased online here. There will be a limited number of tickets available for each night and guests must select a specific night when purchasing tickets.
“In an effort to help reduce wait times and create a more enjoyable experience the number of tickets sold for each night will be limited ,” said Underberg.
Organizers say while you are riding through you should tune your vehicle's radio to 1620 AM where you'll be able to listen to Christmas music and special messaging from sponsors.
