The drive-through Holiday Lights display in Fargo is back this year, but in a new location! It’s a tradition so many have loved for so many years, and we’re excited to see what this year’s holiday lights display will bring to our community.

Formerly the holiday lights display had been held at Lindenwood Park in Fargo. And the new location now is the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo.

So round up your family and take a carload through the variety of holiday displays to get everyone in the Christmas spirit!

The Red River Valley Fair has partnered with Christmas Decor and area businesses to make this year’s holiday lights display bigger and brighter! Animated displays, drive-through tunnels, and RGB effect lighting are spread over 1.5 miles through the fairgrounds.

Save money and purchase tickets ahead of time on the Red River Valley Fair website. Cost is $20 per car and $50 per limo/bus. Tickets purchased at the gate are $25 per car and $55 for each limo/bus.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will go to the FM Sertoma Club for their service projects (they were the previous coordinators of the event), and volunteer groups helping will also receive some of the proceeds each night.

Opening day is Black Friday, November 25th. And hours will be from 5:00 – 10:00 pm every day from November 25th through December 31st. Please note that the Holiday Lights display in Fargo will not be open on Christmas Day, December 25th.
