Outside alcohol is not allowed but alcohol can be purchased on site. Cash and Credit Cards are accepted for all purchases for the food and beverage vendors.

Is there handicapped parking?

Yes, there will be Handicapped parking spots.

Is it stroller / wheelchair friendly?

Although we have smoothed out the land and limited any elevated steps this is still a trail (mulch, grass and gravel), therefore it is possible to push a stroller/ wheelchair but may be challenging in some areas on the property.

We invite dogs to attend the lights for special treats and pictures with Santa on Thursday, December 22 for the PUP STRUT. Dogs are not permitted on any other nights.

Can I bring a child to the Sip and Stroll?

The entire family is welcome every night, and certainly it is up to each family to decide which night is best.

How long is the trail?

Total walking distance will be approximately 1 mile. Possibly more depending on how many activities you choose to participate in.

Can I buy tickets at the door?

We encourage guests to purchase tickets in advance to avoid sold out evenings, however you may purchase tickets at the door if available.
