Wonderland of Lights returns to a simpler time this year without some of the usual activities like nightly ice skating, carousel, and train rides. However, there’s plenty to see and experience as they abide by the necessary safety guidelines during the pandemic.
Visitors enjoy driving and walking through downtown Marshall lit up with millions of lights, horse-drawn carriage rides, many cheerful holiday scenes, and beautifully decorated shops.
