Christmas Magic 2014 A Festival of Lights
Christmas Magic is a 0.5 mile long walking trail (accessible to anyone) that meanders through 600,000 Christmas lights, holiday scenes and five enclosed heated pavilions. The spirit of the Holiday is displayed by using animation, displays, Santa Claus, food and G-gauge train display. The trail sits among a mature oak forest nestled on a quiet mountaintop. In 2014, 600,000 LED lights will greet Park visitors. We use C7,C9 and mini lights to show you the way through the park. Christmas Magic is in its 31st season this year. It began in 1984, the product of the “energy crunch” , when fewer homes were decorating, yet there was still a desire to see Christmas lights locally. In 1984 a small budget allowed for 10,000 lights and props, most produced by the Parks Department. Today, the props are produced commercially and “in-house.” This is the largest program presented by the York County Department of Parks and Recreation each year. Wednesday, December 3rd, during regular show hours bring your pet to Christmas Magic to enjoy the sights and sounds of the Holiday season. Also, have your pet’s picture taken with Santa Claus for $5.00. Members of the Friends of Canine Meadows will be conducting this fundraiser. Regular admissions apply. This is the only night that non-essential animals are allowed at the event. The rain date is Thursday, December 4th.
