The Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights is back for the 28th year of raising money for the Easterseals Rehabilitation Center.

With Thanksgiving behind us, it’s officially Christmas season and the holiday spirit was shining bright for day 2 of Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights.

Organizers call it “the magical mile of holiday lights.”

Myles, a visitor from out of town, says, “It’s actually pretty beautiful.”

Carter, another kid visiting the displays, told 44News, “They are amazing. I think they are colorful and peaceful.”

The Easterseals Rehabilitation Center’s holiday tradition is lighting up Evansville’s Garvin Park for a full mile of sparkling holiday displays.

Organizers say proceeds go directly into the community, providing services for approximately 5,000 children and adults with disabilities in the Tri-State.

This year, Easterseals included 5 new displays for a total of 70 holiday scenes that spread Christmas cheer.

Organizers also say you can view the lights from a horse drawn carriage, when weather permits, and hear stories directly from Santa every Tuesday until January 1st.

The cost is $7 for up to 6 people in a vehicle, 7-14 people in a vehicle is $10, and 15 or more people in a vehicle is $25.

Hours will be Sunday- Thursday 5-9 p.m. CST, Friday and Saturday 5-10 p.m. CST, and Christmas Eve and Christmas Day 5-10 p.m. CST.
The Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights will go from Thanksgiving, November 25th, 2021 through New Year's Day, January 1st, 2022.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
