Winter Wonderland: Louisville, Kentucky



Lights Under Louisville | Nov. 11 – Jan. 2, 2023

An experience unlike anywhere else in the world, Lights Under Louisville allows families to drive underground through a portion of 17-miles worth of subterranean passageways for its annual holiday celebration. Taking place in the Louisville Mega Cavern, which is approximately 100 acres, the annual holiday event takes around 30-minutes to drive through, produces over 900 lit characters with a variety of themes, and features over 4,000,000 points of light. Roll your car windows down as you ride through the cavern as it stays approximately 58 degrees year-round and is one of the country’s only drivable light shows that you can do during the daytime since the tour is fully underground.


Winter Woods Spectacular |Nov. 25 – Jan. 1, 2023
