FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Lights of Joy Christmas Drive-Thru announces ALL new displays
BRANSON, MO- One of Branson’s most popular Christmas attractions, Lights of Joy Christmas Drive-Thru, announced today that they will have an all-new Christmas drive-thru in 2022. “Every major display will be replaced with several new themed sections,” says Kurt Kysar, manager of Lights of Joy Christmas Drive-Thru. “Having extensive new displays is unheard of in this industry, especially in back-to-back years.”
“We know how important Christmas is to the community. Memories are made here. Whether it’s a family, motor coach group or a group of friends, this is an annual tradition for thousands. We will have a variety of displays and new themes such as Space Christmas, Steampunk Christmas, and Season of Joy. We will have some returning favorites like the 12 Days of Christmas, but they will still be new and different from the past.”
Work began this week on putting up the new displays. It takes a large crew and extensive coordination to put the Christmas light drive-thru on. Some of the displays are over 20 feet tall. “When you are in your car you don’t always realize how huge these displays can be.”
In 2020 Bobvilla.com included Lights of Joy Christmas Light Drive-Thru in their top 11 Best Drive -Through Christmas Light Displays in America. The drive-thru has also earned recognition from The Best of Branson awards as well.
Lights of Joy Christmas Drive-Thru is located just north of Sight & Sound Theatre. Guests can enter the attraction at the corner of Shepherd of the Hills Expressway and Expressway Lane. Lights of Joy will open 5-11 PM, nightly, from November 1st through at least January 1st. Rates vary from $25 to $30 per car depending on the night. There are also special rates for minibuses, limousines, and motor coaches. “The Lights of Joy Christmas Drive-Thru is easily accessible for motor coaches and limos with no hills too steep or corners too sharp,” Kysar said. A limited number of season passes are also available.
A special preview night will occur on October 29th with the Tri-Lakes KLIFE Lights of Joy 5k run/walk to go through the Lights of Joy. The run will start at Westgate Resorts and will be a fundraiser for Tri-lakes KLIFE. People will be encouraged to put on their favorite Halloween or Christmas costume.
