Fantasy of Lights 2019
This year is the 25th anniversary of Goodwill of Southern New England’s Fantasy of Lights. Held at Lighthouse Point Park in New Haven, CT, from November 15 to December 31, this is the must-see nighttime Christmas event of the holiday season. This stunning display of Christmas lights supports our mission to enhance employment, educational, social, and recreational opportunities for people with disabilities and other challenges. All proceeds from this event go toward helping us fund our programs.
Open from 5-9 pm, Sunday to Thursday, and 5-10 pm, Friday and Saturday, this amazing family-friendly holiday activity is great for all ages! Tickets are $10 for cars and vans, $25 for minibuses, and $50 for full sized-buses. Once you arrive at Lighthouse Park and pay admission, tune your car radio to 87.9 to hear a delightful mix of holiday music and fun details about our displays. It will take you approximately 15 minutes to travel the mile-long Fantasy of Lights route, and while you are driving we ask that you remain in your car for the safety of yourself and others.
Want to know some fun facts about this year’s Fantasy of Lights? All of our displays were made using new energy-saving LED bulbs. Not only will they be more colorful and vivid, but they are also better for the environment! Another fact is that the tallest Fantasy of Lights display, the Lighthouse, is over 75 feet tall. All in all, it took over 50 teams consisting of hundreds of volunteers to set up and operate this magical holiday event!
We are so grateful for all of the support we have received from our community. Special thanks goes out to Public Service Enterprise Group for being our 2019 Presenting Sponsor, News8 for being our Media Sponsor, and People’s United Advisors, the Alera Group, Citizens Bank for being Premiere Sponsors, and Subway for being our Preview Night Sponsor and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra for providing the background music. We also want to thank all of our other amazing sponsors and our wonderful volunteers for helping us put on this amazing Christmas event for our community! Without dedicated partners like you, we would not be able to maintain crucial programs that help us change many lives for the better. Because of you, we are able to set the people we serve on the path toward independent and personal fulfillment.
