When you think of Lake Compounce Park you probably imagine splashing around in the hot summer sun, but for the past 5 years they have offered some pretty amazing winter entertainment as well. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from now until December 18, the entire family can enjoy holiday light shows, music and rides.
Upon entering the park, you will be dazzled by the thousands of colorful lights flashing and dancing.
The largest Christmas tree in Connecticut towers 100 feet above you.
There are nightly entertainers and costumed holiday characters.
Professional ice carvers making sculptures as you watch.
Children adore caroling, sitting in for story-time with Mrs. Clause and watching the balloon man create their very own balloon animal.
I'm back at #holidaylights at @lakecompounce! Stop by for the next four weekend to get an awesome #balloonanimal at the Parkside Diner. And new this year, be sure to get a photo in the cool #balloon photo frame. New design every weekend! #lakecompounce #lcholidaylights #robtheballoonguy #funnylittleballoonguy
And of course, visiting with Santa!
The kids can enjoy hot chocolate and their own custom decorated cookies.
There’s even a holiday shop to grab those last-minute gifts or hand-make your own!
During Holiday Lights you can create a snow globe for just $6.99 plus tax! It will be a wonderful thing to have for the Holidays. Come visit us at Breyers ice cream shop in the back of the park to create one. Holiday lights runs weekends from now thru December 18th! #lakecompounce #holidaylights @lakecompounce
