If you are from Des Moines or have lived in Des Moines for awhile, you know about Jolly Holiday Lights. It is one of those “must do” holiday things.
The proceeds from this entire event goes to Make-A-Wish Iowa. Last year, this event raised enough money to make wishes come true of more than 35 children in Iowa. This truly is an event that is fun for the entire family and does some good for others 🙂
Jolly Holiday Lights is a 3.5 mile tour of lights through Water Works Park. There are several displays and each display is donated from a local business such as KCCI, More 104, DMOS, Goode Greenhouses and many, many more!
At the end of the event is Santa’s Wish Shop! Where you can take a picture with Santa, enjoy hot cocoa & cookie, and do some small holiday shopping.
Jolly Holiday Lights runs November 25th until January 1st 5:30 pm – 10:00 pm
Santa’s Wish Shop is open Sunday through Thursday until 9:00 pm
$10.00 per car
$20 per limo/mini bus

You still have plenty of time to drive through Jolly Holiday Lights! Don’t miss it!
