Fantasy in Lights® at Callaway Gardens bedazzles young and old nightly, November 18 to December 30, continuing a tradition started two decades ago.
Families choose a time (6, 7 or 8 p.m.) and board the fun, interactive “Jolly Trolley” or take their own car while navigating more than five miles and 14 striking holiday scenes at the 13,000-acre destination about an hour southwest of Atlanta and thirty minutes north of Columbus.
Take a break from the electrifying displays and gather round two narrated scenes on Robin Lake Beach, Twas the Night Before Christmas and The Nativity, each lasting about 10 minutes.
Then, unwrap more holiday magic at the Christmas Village, open daily beginning at 4pm, an indoor magical wonderland shopping area with opportunities to visit Santa Claus and other holiday characters. Shop for specialty food items at the Callaway Gardens Country Store®, gather unique gifts. An array of Georgia crafters will be on hand making and selling their wares.
