    Kennywood Recieves it's Own Christmas Event

    WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. -- Kennywood officials announced on Wednesday that they’ll be holding “Holiday Lights” in December at the park.

    The park will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. on select days, with activities including a light show featuring tens of thousands of lights set to holiday songs.

    The park is scheduled to be open Dec. 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 16, 17 and 18. The show will take place around the lagoon several times each night, officials said.

    "Having a holiday event at Kennywood is something we've been talking about for years. It really wasn't considered a serious idea until this year," said Kennywood spokesman Jeff Filicko.

    Guests can also enjoy the Carousel, Kangaroo, Paratrooper, a newly holiday themed Olde Kennywood Railroad and several rides in Kiddieland.

    "With holiday lights, it's great because now we get to visit Kennywood in December and even ride some rides which is kind of cool," said Kennywood visitor Bill Linkenheimer.

    Food will also be available, including kettle corn, s’mores, a variety of hot drinks and Potato Patch Fries.

    Parking will be free and there will be a small admission fee yet to be determined, officials said.
    I hope they may plan on starting out slow with a few rides, then maybe expanding it to more of the park in later years.

    Sounds like with Palace's purchase of Dutch Wonderland and seeing the success of Winter Wonderland, they're now trying out the Christmas concept at Kennywood now. Perhaps if this is successful, maybe we'll see Idlewild and Lake Compounce receive a similar event.

    I'm happy that they're doing this and along with Busch Gardens' Christmas Towne, it's nice to see more and more parks getting into the spirit with such events.

    And it keeps people employed. I used to live about 40 minutes from here. Loved their wooden coasters.
