Looking for something to do to get you in the holiday spirit? How about a holiday light show. There are lots of them to chose from all over the region. In Bucks County, the place to be is Shady Brook Farm, in Newtown, just off I-95. It’s packed with all kinds of lights and things to see. First, the holiday shop is open and you can meet Santa. After that, it’;s time for the light show. There are two ways to see this attraction..The first is to pile family and friends into a car and drive through. That’s fun but someone has to drive and might not be able to pay attention to the lights.
The second, is to park the vehicle and take a wagon ride through the area. It’s done at a slower pace and it lasts about 20minutes. This way, everyone can concentrate on everything and it’s perfectly fine to take your eyes off the road. While there are displays from Hanukkah and Christmas, most of the displays have nothing to do with the holidays. They just look neat. Like animals, and Mount Rushmore.
For those that want to see some of Europe and India , there is the Taj Mahal and the Leaning Tower of Piza. There is an elaborate sports display featuring basketball, soccer and football.. Many people who take the wagon ride will want to take photos. To get the best results, push your ISO as high as you can. Keep the shutter around 1/30 and try to keep still. The photos will be acceptable and you can share them on social media.
Dress warm, the weather is cold out. Numerous fire pits are lit for folks to sit down and roast marshmallows. Needless to say, this is not something you just drive through and then you are going home.
