Upper's Winter Fantasy of Lights

Each December, Harrison Smith Park in Upper Sandusky comes alive with the sights and sounds of Christmas! An ambicious group of local citizens put together this idea of a drive through Christmas light display with the proceeds going to a local charity. For over 10 years, volunteers choose a local organization based on submitted applications to receive the proceeds, string thousands and thousands of colored Christmas lights and set up displays over the grounds of this park.
Local individuals, groups, organizations, businesses, and individuals offer to set up a themed display. One display is honored as the "featured display" giving special recognition to the scene.
As you wind your way through the park, holiday music is playing throughout. Unique displays created by local individuals and groups generally have a theme and a name to go along with the scene unfolding before you.
There are so many more favorite displays that it is so hard to describe all of them. This is truly a Christmas light wonderland for the whole family! The park is open each weeknight from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, and on weekends 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm December 1 through 30. Again this is a fundraiser and the suggested donation per car is just $5. On Sundays, you can reserve a horse drawn carriage ride through the lights. To get on this list, call the Upper Sandusky Area Chamber of Commerce.
