Gilroy Gardens Transforms Into a Majestic Winter Wonderland During Sixth Annual 'Holiday Lights(TM)' Celebration

20th November, 2009

The hardworking "elves" at Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park are making a list and checking it twice to ensure the sixth annual Holiday Lights(TM) is twice as nice! The popular Bay Area holiday celebration returns to California's only horticultural theme park on Friday, December 4th and takes place for 17 magical nights through Wednesday, December 30th.

The lights in the trees and throughout the park will not be the only element to light up the night sky this year as we have added "Nights of Fire" a laser light and fireworks spectacular. This Laser light and fireworks show which is choreographed to a spectacular holiday sound track on Coyote Lake is sure to be a crowd favorite this holiday season. Viewing is standing room only for this 15 minute sensory extravaganza! Show is free with park admission.

Returning for another season is "A Charlie Brown Christmas" from Knott's Merry Farm. Presented nightly, two holiday-themed character shows featuring Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally and everyone's favorite beagle, Snoopy from the popular PEANUTS comic series will be performing nightly.

Sparkling with more than a million dazzling lights, Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park will be magically transformed into a winter wonderland filled with one-of-a-kind holiday entertainment for the entire family including ice skating under the stars at Gilroy's only ice skating venue, an all-you-can-eat holiday feast, holiday themed rides, visits with Santa and more!

"Holiday Lights is one of my favorite times of year. The park is naturally beautiful, and with all of the elements added, it just makes it something special," said Barb Granter, vice president and general manager for Gilroy Gardens Family Theme Park. "Now in our sixth year, this event continues to be the perfect way for families to celebrate the magic of the holidays together and has become an annual tradition for many of our park guests."

Guests looking to enhance their Holiday Lights(TM) experience can also take part in an old-fashioned holiday feast with all the "trimmings" in the Park's heated Snowflake Palace. Families can enjoy traditional holiday fare including honey glazed ham, roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, delectable desserts, hot chocolate and Coca-Cola beverages.
