With significant expansions in 2020, 2021, & 2022, Shipshewana's Lights of Joy light drive-through experience is now home to more than two million LED Christmas lights displayed in an almost mile and a half long symphony of colorful light scenes, animatronics, and more for this upcoming holiday season. When you arrive, tune your radio to our Christmas music broadcast and soak in the Christmas Spirit!
