Light-Up Night Just the Beginning for Big Butler Lights Show
The three-mile-long holiday display is returning for its second season to the Pittsburgh area.
A massive, drive-thru holiday light show synchronized to music will again take over the Big Butler Fairgrounds beginning Nov. 18 through Jan. 8.
It’s the second season for Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland, which kicks off its show on Pittsburgh’s Light-Up night. Last year, the three-mile-long display attracted large crowds, often slowing weekend traffic along route 422.
In the summer, the Shadrack family operates a watersports business in Bristol, Tenn. Looking for something to keep their employees busy in the winter months, the company began hosting holiday light shows. Butler County is one of six locations this season and the only one north of the Mason-Dixon line.
The shows are open from dusk to 10 p.m. (or later on weekends) every night, including holidays. Admission is $25 per car; $40 for a mini-bus, limousine or activity van; and $80 for school and tour busses (cash or credit card only). The Big Butler County Fairgrounds are located just off of route 422 on Unionville Road, about an hour's drive from Downtown Pittsburgh.
