During a two-mile drive at the Blossom Holiday Lighting Festival, carloads of spectators creep past 300 festive scenes illuminated with more than 2 million lights. The second annual tour starts under "the Snowflake Archway," which is followed by displays of penguins, a toy factory, and a dragon-shaped volcano. With some attractions reaching 45 feet high, the park also boasts "the Tunnel of Lights" and a scene depicting the 12 days of Christmas. The light parade stopped the show last year, when it attracted more than 100,000 holiday revelers. "We work extremely hard to create a high-quality event to be proud of," says manager Mark Girton. "Blossom is now transformed into a fantasyland for all ages." Drive through the display between 6 and 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6 and 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays until January 27 at Blossom Music Center, 1145 West Steels Corners Road in Cuyahoga Falls. Admission is $15 a car. Call 216-241-5555 or visit
Mondays-Thursdays, Sundays, 6-9 p.m.; Fridays, Saturdays, 6-11 p.m. Starts: Nov. 20. Continues through Jan. 27, 2007
