Even if you've been there before, this year's show promises even more holiday magic than ever with all new experiences.

According to the Lake Compounce website, this Holiday Lights show, which is recommended for the entire family, is being advertised as having five new experiences,  will include new light displays and spectacular light shows set to your favorite holiday songs.

Because the annual light show at Lake Compounce was canceled last year due to the pandemic, organizers are saying that this year's show will be more than just a mind blowing light show. There's also a chance for you to get your whole family into the Christmas Spirit by decorating holiday cookies, building a gingerbread house, writing a letter to Santa, or maybe taking a ride on the North Pole Railway, which makes stops at Kiddie Land, where you can catch Mrs. Claus telling Christmas stories, and the Winter Wonderland Starlight Theater where your kids get a little one on one time with Santa, and get a photo taken with him as well. It's a true North Pole Extravaganza.

There's also an all new stage show this year at the Starlight Theater called "Once Upon a Christmas" with singing, dancing, and a little Christmas magic.

The Holiday Lights kicks off with an ugly sweater party on Friday, November 26, and the official lighting of the 100 foot tall Christmas tree that contains 175,000 lights to commemorate the 175th anniversary of the park. The festivities continue each weekend in December with special themes featured each week.

Here's a rundown of what you can expect during the month of December.

December 3-4: Bring a toy to donate to the Boys & Girls Club of Bristol and receive free parking.

December 5: Bring your family pet for what they are calling "Pawliday Lights". Pets will be able to take photos with Santa, you can also treat them to some puppichino. If you don't have a pet, this is the weekend to also check out the adoptable dogs from Dog Star Rescue.
