Seasonal sights: Holiday lights!

Dazzling displays of twinkling lights

It’s a magical way to brighten the holiday season.  Holiday lights! The seasonal sights transform the dark nights by adding a festive feel to the air.   Take a drive around the Granite State and you will find light displays of just about every shape and size. If you’re driving along Route 106 in Loudon,  The Gift of Lights is sure to catch your eye.  And with good reason, there are millions of lights that transform the New Hampshire Motor Speedway into a brilliant display of twinkling lights.  Go ahead, take a look in this sneak peek!

 

Be sure to check New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s site for the 2017 schedule of this year’s Gift of Lights.

Holiday festivals and events in New Hampshire

There are so many ways to experience the magic of the season here in New Hampshire.  And, there are still a few days left to do so!  With that in mind, here’s a few suggestions.  The Lighted Winter Wonderland at Charmingfare Farm in Candia will whisk you away on a horse-drawn ride through thousands of lights on your way to the North Pole.  Or, if trains are more your style, hop aboard  Santa’s Holiday Express and head out for some holiday fun riding the rails on the Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway.  Head to the Upper Valley and make a stop at the Hanover Inn Dartmouth to see what the chefs there have been up to this holiday season, hint: a ginormous gingerbread house!  And before I let you go, here’s a few suggestions of how to ring in the New Year in New Hampshire  with family and friends!

Happy holidays all!
