The annual Wentzville Holiday Night Lights display at Rotary Park opens on Friday, NOV 23 for the holiday season.

This holiday display is a great way to experience the magic and joy of a winter wonderland close to home. Drive-thru admission is only $8 for vehicles holding up to six passengers; $1 per additional person after the sixth.
