Shipshewana's NEW Christmas
Light Drive-Thru Experience

Due to weather delays and shortages of transformers caused by hurricanes the opening of the Gift of Lights has been postponed till November 2018.


In 2018 Shipshewana will become home to more than two million LED Christmas lights displayed in a mile long symphony of various light scenes this upcoming holiday season. Shipshewana’s Gift of Lights, a new drive through-light display experience!

We knew Shipshewana would be a great location for this display because the town is already such a festive place for families to spend the holiday season.

This is a wonderful opportunity for families to make new traditions by visiting Shipshewana’s Gift of Lights and the other activities the town has planned.
