The holidays are here and, all across Arkansas, the brightly colored, twinkling lights, creative displays, and classic Christmas tunes are ready. Come follow along the Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights!
It seems that almost everyone enjoys colorful Christmas lights – and who can blame them. Can you imagine how dark and dull December nights would be without them? You don’t even have to celebrate Christmas to appreciate the warmth, joy, and good will they express during one of the colder times of the year.
Arkansans are no different than anyone else – we love our holiday decorations, too. In fact, we might even like them a little more than most. That’s the sense one gets, looking at a listing of Arkansas’ public holiday light displays!

Pine Bluff’s genuinely breath-taking tribute to the Christmas season is now open! Arkansas’s largest drive-thru display of holiday lights has become a holiday institution. Celebrating 20 years, the 1.3 mile-long attraction boasts more than 280 displays in 180 locations!
Well over 110,000 people attend the Enchanted Land Of Lights & Legends each year, putting it right up there with some of the biggest festivals in Arkansas. So who can blame folks for continuing to come, year after year?
Not only is the Enchanted Land Of Lights & Legends absolutely free to visit but you’ll never see anything like this drive-through display. You’ll see famous characters and situations, some animated, all artfully created with light.
Driving through the course will fill you with warm memories and the joyous spirit of the holidays. There’s even a picture station, so you can preserve your visit in a keepsake photo.
Every year, The Pine Bluff Festival Association accepts orders for Memorial/Honor Stars. Each star is â€œIn Honor ofâ€ or â€œIn Memory ofâ€ the person or organization that you choose. Your star will also receive recognition in the Enchanted Land Of Lights & Legends program as well as be added to the â€œMemorial Starâ€ lighted billboard.
The deadline for 2016 Memorial/Honor Stars passed on October 25th, 2016 but they are already taking orders for next year. Consequently, now is the perfect time to order a star for next year!
Donations and purchases made at the Enchanted Land Of Lights & Legends go towards making next year’s display bigger, better, and brighter.
