MASSC Holiday Lights Dinner and Drive - December 6, 2008

UPDATED FIRST POST TO INCLUDE EVENT DETAILS!


DATE: Saturday, December 6th

Meet: Time and Locations to be determined - I may have 2 groups for the drive to Hershey, one North and one South of I-78. Currently looking at backroads for a more scenic drive than just taking the interstate.

IMPORTANT - CHANGE IN DINNER LOCATION!!!
We will meet for dinner at 5:00pm at the following location:
The Fire House Restaurant
606 North 2nd Street
Harrisburg, PA 17101
Harrisburg Dining at The Fire House Restaurant

Following Dinner we will make the short drive to Hershey Park for the Sweet Lights Display (cost is $20 per car)


Lodging Options:

Holiday Inn Express – Hershey (thanks JustMike!)
610 Walton Avenue
Hummelstown, Pennsylvania, 17036
Phone: 717-583-0500
Rate - $112 per night advance reservation

I'll look for more lodging options in the area, but if you plan to stay overnight, you may want to book a room now. I checked the Hershey Lodge, but they don't have any availability for the 6th.

I wasn't planning on making it an "organized" overnight event.

But once the final decision is made on which Lights display we will go to, I can post some info on lodging in the area, for anyone who may want to stay over.

Thanks! That is the one we did 2 years ago. We combined it with the Christmas Market and dinner in Bethlehem first.

I'll keep that one in mind too, in case Hershey is too far for folks.

also - watch out for some of the places...

The light show could be on a farm, with lots of mud.

I went to a show one year and it rained the day before.
That resulted in lots of mud puddles.

Fortunately, I was in my van...

Thanks! Someone on the Sky side mentioned the same thing.

I'm gonna look into whether or not they still do it - from what I could find on the internet, they stopped doing it a few years ago. I'll let everyone know what I find out.

Yeah, the place we went to last year was on a farm. Fortunately, it was so cold out that the ground was frozen solid.

But that is why this year I am looking at the larger, more commercial displays. Less likely to be a mud pit.

I contacted Great Adventure.

Unfortunately, they won't be doing a Holiday Lights display this year.
