NEW HAVEN - Fantasy of Lights, presented by Easter Seals Goodwill Industries, has become a holiday tradition for thousands of families.
Now in its fourteenth year, the dazzling nighttime event at New Haven’s Lighthouse Point Park from Nov. 22 through Dec. 31 will delight visitors as they drive through an enchanted land of sparkling holiday light displays, organizers said.
Area businesses, corporations and individuals sponsor the displays. PSEG Power Connecticut LLC is the title sponsor.
"Easter Seals Goodwill Industries adds a new dimension to this year’s event – ‘Light Night Giveaways’ in partnership with News Channel 8/ MyTV9," said H. Richard Borer, Jr. in a statement.
"For each of the 40 nights of Fantasy of Lights, area merchants have provided valuable coupons redeemable at over 60 businesses. Every car that comes to Fantasy of lights will receive a coupon from an area merchant."
"Like all non-profits, we are clearly feeling the effects of the economic downturn. The demand for our services has increased, and the volunteer donations are increasingly more difficult to receive. Easter Seals Goodwill Industries is grateful for the community and business support that enable us to provide life-changing programs that contributed to the well-being of 1,000 people with disabilities and other special needs over the past year," Borer said.
Hours are Sunday through Thursday 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday, 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Admission for passenger cars/family vans is $10, 15-passenger vans or mini-buses $25, buses $50. Proceeds benefit Easter Seals Goodwill Industries whose mission is to enhance employment, educational, social and recreational opportunities for people with disabilities and other challenges.
