Conceived in 1987, Wonderland of Lights rivals the best Christmas lighting events in the country. Thousands of white lights illuminate the Historic 1900 Harrison County Courthouse and Downtown Marshall. Join us this year as we celebrate 30 years of Wonderland of Lights. Enjoy the outdoor ice skating rink, Santa’s Workshop & Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen, horse drawn carriage rides, train rides through downtown, and a ride on our restored 1940's vintage carousel. Live entertainment on the weekends.
The Annual Lighting Ceremony is at 6:00 p.m. November 23 with Santa arriving to kick-off the festivities. The Annual Lighted Downtown Christmas Parade is 6 p.m. December 3. Each Saturday during the season features a special event.

Wonderland of Lights is open Wednesday through Sunday from November 23 thru December 31 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. nightly, and 4:00 - 10:00 p.m. on Saturday's. Closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
