The display includes 7 acres of lights.
This year Piper Lights will be ONLY a drive-thru attraction. The candy store and train will not be running this year.
This is a free attraction.
Make sure to check Piper Lights’ Facebook page for updates and schedule changes. Weather can affect the schedule. Sometimes they have to close for a couple days after rain or snow.
The display starts Friday, November 24, 2023 (the day after Thanksgiving), and typically runs through January 1st. Please check back as we update the hours, but if it’s the same as last year, they will be:
- Sunday-Thursday: 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
- Friday and Saturday: 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Admission is always free, but donations are greatly appreciated. Piper Lights is not a business but just a family who wants to share the joys of the season with the community. All donations go to light repairs and the electric bill.
This is a popular attraction and can draw a crowd. You might find smaller crowds and shorter wait times if you come during the week, instead of the weekend.
