HOLIDAY LIGHTS SAFARI BENEFIT
Open though January 1st
THE HOLIDAY SAFARI BENEFIT IS CELEBRATING
ITS 31st ANNIVERSARY!
For 31 years and counting, the preserve has hosted the Holiday Lights Safari Benefit. This family-oriented event will, once again, offer an unforgettable opportunity for children and adults alike to share and embrace the Christmas spirit. Imaginative new displays, music, religious, and secular themes, programmable lighting, and new, featured exhibits will blanket the hundred-acre park.
Unfortunately, Santa's Village will not be open this year. (We are highly disappointed that we were unsuccessful in hiring the 30 additional people necessary each night to operate that area of the event.) Hopefully next year Santa's Village will be able to re-open brighter and better than ever!
Extra energy and effort are being devoted to making the drive-through all the more special and memorable. A favorite adventure is driving through the Enchanted Deer Forest where herds of animals approach the vehicles and eat right out of people’s hands. (There is an additional fee to enter the deer forest.) This area has been enlarged to allow for added interaction with the herds of animals and for easier navigation.
The evening will be crowned with a peaceful drive through the inspirational biblical area that includes a life-sized nativity and is enhanced with Old and New Testament displays. Santa and Mrs. Claus will have treats for the children at the end of the event.
Proceeds from this event directly benefit the hundreds of animals that reside at Hollywild Animal Preserve, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization since 1999.
