Holiday Spirit Festival Closing Early for the Season Ahead of Winter Storm
The Hudson Valley is home to some of the most festive holiday decorations in all of New York State. Professional displays and private residents are wrapped in glowing strings of light that take months to prepare for.
In fact, the Hudson Valley is home to the Guinness World Record holder for the most lights on a residential display. The "ERDJAT" home in Lagrangeville is a sight to behold, with over 700,000 individual lights that change color and turn on and off to an elaborate soundtrack.
There are also several professional displays that invite people to either walk or drive through their winter wonderland of lights. Tickets sell out quickly for popular evenings, especially during the week leading up to Christmas.
One of these professional displays has announced that it will be shutting down for the season two days early. Visitors will have one more night to visit before the lights go dark. Typically, the light display is open until December 23, never open on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
The announcement was made on Tuesday that Kevin McCurdy's Holiday Spirit Festival will close early for the season on December 21.
The festival says that the weather is to blame.
Wednesday Dec 21 will be our last day of the season! (Unfortunately, due to the impending storm, we are closing Thursday and Friday). So make your reservations now- limited amount of tickets! Don’t miss the Magic!
The display was already forced to shut down on Friday due to inclement weather.
Kevin McCurdy's Holiday Spirit Festival has been open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. However, because of the impending storm, this Wednesday was added to the schedule in anticipation of having to shut down early.
There are reportedly only a limited number of reservations available for the final night. You can find out more details on the display's website.
