All is Bright

All is calm, all is bright… The holiday season is shining brighter than ever in North Carolina. With only a few nights left to enjoy the magic of these holiday light displays, hop into your sleigh, or transport of your choosing, and take a few calm moments to enjoy all that is bright.

Winter Lights at CATHIS Farm – Lillington

A 45-minute drive is nothing for Santa and his team of highly skilled reindeer. The sparkling lights of CATHIS Farm are illuminating Lillington, THE holiday light destination of the year. Stroll through the light displays, while taking a break or two in the snowfall play area or for s’mores at the bonfire. New for 2022, experience even more lights on the hayride. There’s still time to purchase holiday treats and gifts in the farm store or take your holiday card photo!

New photo passes are available for the whole family. Staff will send pictures of you and your guests for viewing, downloading and sharing during your visit. Before you leave, stop for a photo opportunity with Santa and the Grinch! Tickets are available until Monday, December 26. CATHIS Farm will be closed on Christmas and Christmas Eve.
