It has become a long time tradition in the Lehigh Valley to celebrate the Christmas season with amazing displays of lights!  This year marks the 15th annual Lights in the Parkway, a beautiful collection of lights and animated displays winding through one of Allentown’s most beautiful parks.  This drive-thru light display covers more than a mile of the Lehigh Parkway and promises to shine brighter than ever before!

This widely anticipated Christmas event has a history dating back to 1996.

“It began as a flicker and is now a full-blown dream come true.  It has become a symbol of community spirit that burns brightly as it draws hundreds of local volunteers and hundreds of thousands of visitors.  From the very beginning, Lights In The Parkway has been symbolic of the holiday season because of its collaborative nature.  Hundreds of people work together to make this special event possible including volunteer organizations, City of Allentown employees, bus tour and hotel operators, and the many local business owners who give generously to help sponsor the display.”

Lights in the Parkway begins on December 3, 2010 through January 2, 2011 and is closed on Christmas Day.  Enjoy the spectacular display of lights from 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm every day of the week and tickets can be purchased at the gate for $7.00 per car with this coupon for $2.00 off admission.  Part of the proceeds benefits local community groups whose members volunteer to staff the display. Recipients include the Cub Scouts, school groups, the Allentown Fire Police, and community groups.

A sneak peek of what you can expect this year includes scenes from the Wizard of Oz, Cinderella Collections, and dinosaurs!  Just Born and A-Treat will also be providing giveaways while supplies last.  It takes approximately 25 minutes to tour the lights, not including any time you may spend in the Gift Barn!

Driving is not the only way to enjoy the Lights in the Parkway.  You could ride your bike through the lights or take a Horse Drawn Carriage Ride!

Because horse-drawn carriage rides were such a success during the 2009-2010, they will again be offered by reservation only. The price will again be $10 per person.  Pricing varies for a private carriage.  For more information and to make reservations, please call 610-799-0591 or visit

Celebrate this holiday season with the Lehigh Valley tradition, Lights in the Parkway.  We promise you will not be disappointed!
