Now that the holidays are just around the corner, it’s about time to get those decorations up in and outside the house. The first step is getting last year’s lights and decorations out of your mobile storage or self storage unit. After this is done a great place to go for inspiration is the annual Lakemont Park and The Island Waterpark Holiday Lights on the Lake in Altoona, PA.

The Holiday Lights on the Lake is a fifty-one acre spectacular light display held in the famous Lakemount Amusement Park. The light show started in 1997 to keep employees from being laid off during the winter months. Today the Holiday Lights on the Lake donates to local, regional, and national non-profit organizations. Some of these groups include, but are not limited to, the American Heart Association, The Salvation Army, American Cancer Society, Leukemia Society of America, and American Red Cross. Your family is invited to join the park in this holiday tradition.

Spectators enter the park and drive through a dazzlingly display of lights and animations. The Lakemont Park’s radio station is continuously playing Christmas tunes that add to the holiday spirit. Hop in your car, grab a thermos of coco, a warm blanket, and enjoy the drive.

Look out for the Grinch! During the light show the Grinch is up to his mischievous tricks, stealing all the Christmas presents. While driving through the park use the entry form to write down the items you see that darn old Grinch steal. Once the drive through the Holiday Lights is over you can leave your entry form in Santa’s village! In Santa’s village your family can take pictures with Santa, as well as enjoy delicious refreshments. The gift shop is also located in Santa’s shop and will be open during the hours of the show.

The Holiday Lights on the Lake is open every night 6pm to 10pm from November 24, 2011 to January 8, 2012. On the special days of December 20, 22, 26, and 28 you are invited to tour Holiday Lights on the Lake just as they did in the olden days. Diamond Lane Carriage services provide carriage and wagon rides with reservation.

After you’ve experienced the brilliant display of lights and animations your family will be feeling inspired to spend time together putting up the lights and decorations that have spent the warmer months in mobile storage or self storage.
