The holidays are approaching quickly, and we couldn’t be more excited! This Christmas season, Grant County hosts two amazing holiday light displays throughout the entire month of December.

The Walkway of Lights is Grant County’s famous winter wonderland, held annually in Marion, Indiana.

From the 12 Days of Christmas to Garfield the lasagna loving cat, you’ll find plenty of reasons to be filled with Christmas cheer! You can enjoy the Walkway of Lights nightly from November 21 – December 31, 6pm to 10pm. You’ll discover the lights at 1403 N. Matter Park Rd. in Marion, Indiana.
