Cathis Farm, at 5444 Falcon Road, Lillington, NC, in Harnett County, is about an hour southwest of Raleigh, and closer to spots on the southern part of Wake County.
Cathis Farm invites visitors to Winter Lights, a festive event that takes place Fridays and Saturdays from November 27th to December 19th, 2020, as well as Wednesday, December 23rd, Thursday, December 24th, and Saturday, December 26th. It does not take place on Christmas Day.

Admission is $5. Children under 3 are admitted for free.
The event features:
- Walk-through light displays
- Professional photos with Santa
- Outdoor holiday movies

The Country Store features sustainable, grass-fed and pasture-raised pork, chicken, beef, turkey, and more, all produced right on the farm.
The professional photos with Santa are free with admission. A photo with Santa, with a watermark, will be emailed to you, at no extra charge. For $5, they’ll send you a few variations with no watermark.
Masks and social distancing are required at the event, especially in closer contact areas like ticketing, concessions, the Country Store, and anywhere our customers might find themselves within 6 feet of a person they didn’t arrive with.
The farm is large, so there’s plenty of space to distance and remove a mask while enjoying a snack or just taking a moment.
Santa wears a mask and gloves, and uses hand sanitizer as often as possible.
Children are asked to sit on the rug next to him – he can be reading to the children in the photo, or they can just sit near him. Participants in the photo sessions wear masks when near Santa.
Sessions are kept to 10 minutes or less to reduce contact.
