Fantasy of Lights starts Thanksgiving night

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights starts Thursday night in Evansville.

This year’s show will have 65 displays, the most the event has ever had.

There is one new display this year - a lion painting a gift box.

The first car will go through at 5 p.m.

Easterseals officials say that families can buy tickets in advance online for a new contactless experience.

Participants can drive their vehicle or take a carriage ride through the park.

All the money raised goes to easterseals.

Admission at the gate is cash only.

Fantasy of Lights raised a record $180,000 dollars last year, so event organizers are hoping to at least match that total.

The event will be open nightly from Thanksgiving through January 1.
