Oglebay Festival of Lights!

Last night we piled the kids into the Escalade and headed for the Festival of Lights! I was excited to see them and to be marking the second item off my list of 35 Things I Want To Do While I Am 35!

We turned on the holiday music as we drove through...

I think I was even more excited than the kids. Cutie kept saying she wanted to go to Walmart...lol.

The American flag was gorgeous...my 2nd favorite display. Dr. Hubby loved the line of trees wrapped in only blue lights...we called it the "blue forrest."

This display is over 60 feet tall and sit on a hillside...it is gorgeous...and my favorite. The snowflake tunnel was a little disappointing since it was very short and I was expecting longer and brighter.
It was a great time. It was so cold that we did not do the Zoo lights or the Gardens, but it is always good to save something for next year!
Merry Christmas!

Sounds like Fun, Fun, Fun!! We don't have anything like that around here, but I do like riding around to see all the different light displays on the houses. I'm glad you got to do this and check it off your list......=)

Looks like a great time. I like the same one you do- WOW!~

We STILL need to get out and see the lights. We're thinking of taking the kids to Temple Square. It's been a few years since we've seen them there.
