SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) – If you’re looking for a place to go to see the Christmas lights, Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park Candy Cane Lane is open.
The drive-thru features dazzling farm-themed holiday displays and over 10,000 lights. The cost is $ 5 per vehicle in cash or by card accepted as a method of payment. No buses or limousines can cross the park due to height restrictions and sharp turns.
“It’s just a fun thing to do with your family on a Friday or Saturday night,” said Jenny Fillmer Edwards, Park Board public information administrator. “Just get in the car and you could be driving looking at the Christmas lights. This is the illuminated drive-thru display at Farm Park. There are lights, there are trees, there are farm themed characters and scenes and it’s just a fun little thing to do.
Before going out, there is still construction going on in the neighborhood. Farm Rod 146 (Bennett) is closed between West Bypass and the entrance to Farm Park. Access the farm park from the west, from these alternative routes
From W. Sunshine St., head north on McCurry. Turn left on Old Sunshine Road, then right on Burks Ave, then right on Farm Road 146, and you’ve arrived!
From W. Mt. Vernon St., head south on Orchard Crest Ave., turn right on Grand St., left on Farm Road 123, which will merge with Farm Road 146, ending at Farm Park.
Due to road construction, the concessions will not be sold to Candy Cane Lane this year, in an effort to keep traffic going.
“Candy Cane Lane is just one of three big light displays that we have in parks right now,” Fillmer Edwards said. “Garden Siglo continues in the Japanese promenade garden Mizumoto which is a passing exhibition. It’s $ 5 to get in and it’s pretty fantastic. The other exhibit we have is here at Jordan Valley Park, the Festival of Lights.
