In 2018 Shipshewana will become home to more than two million LED Christmas lights displayed in a mile long symphony of various light scenes this upcoming holiday season. Shipshewana’s Lights of Joy, a new drive through-light display experience!

We knew Shipshewana would be a great location for this display because the town is already such a festive place for families to spend the holiday season.

This is a wonderful opportunity for families to make new traditions by visiting Shipshewana’s Lights of Joy and the other activities the town has planned.
