It’s December first, and Christmas is in full swing.
After our adventure at the fish market, we headed to the initial reason behind this road trip – getting Mama to the Festival of Lights at the Oglebay Resort in Wheeling. She liked it so much that we ended up going twice!
This was one of those situations where I’m glad Daddy drives. The holiday light show is one of the nation’s largest, covering more than 300 acres over a six-mile drive throughout the resort. As we went so early in November, it wasn’t terribly crowded, but there were still people out and about.
Not all displays are Christmas-themed, but they are all absolutely amazing. I think my favorites were the giant swans on the lake, while Mama was impressed by Cinderella’s Castle, the jumping horse and rider, and the snowflake tunnel.
If you can make it there, it would be a marvelous addition to your Christmas festivities!
