Park Sets Holiday Lighting, Camping Plans
The Santa Claus Land of Lights Family Christmas Light Adventure, opens for the 4th season on Thanksgiving night (Nov. 22) at Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort in Santa Claus, Ind.
This custom outdoor light show tells "the Shining Story of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer in bright, energy-efficient LED lights," according to a news release. The Santa Claus Land of Lights is the only light show in North America that tells a story in lights and storyboards. At 1.2 miles long, it is also one of the largest holiday light shows in North America.
This season, thousands of additional lights have been added to the custom outdoor show and once again each vehicle will receive a free photo with Rudolph.
Lake Rudolph Campground & RV Resort will once again partner with McDonald’s in the Evansville and Terre Haute, Ind., areas. Discount coupons ($4 off per vehicle) for the Family Christmas Light Adventure will be offered at 64 McDonald’s locations in Indiana, Kentucky and Illinois, and a portion of proceeds will be donated to Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ohio Valley (RMHC).
Over the past three years, Lake Rudolph has donated nearly $29,000 to Ronald McDonald House Charities in Evansville, Ind., and Louisville, Ky. A complete list of coupon locations may be found at www.SantaClausLandofLights.com.
