Fantasy of Lights at the Big Fresno Fair

Fantasy of Lights is the Big Fresno Fair’s first ever holiday light show. It’s presented by Valley Children’s Healthcare and Outfront Media. This will be a nice addition, considering that the long running Christmas Tree Lane has been backed up, and that the long running Santa Claus Lane (of which I did a blog about last year) shut down permanently. Fantasy of Lights kicked off on December 3rd, will be open everyday 5pm-9pm, and ends on January 3rd. (Make note that it will be closed on Christmas.)

The event is entirely drive-thru, due to COVID-19 of course. Monday through Thursday, tickets per vehicle are $25, and $30 Friday through Sunday. However, you can get $5 off these prices if you pay in advance (at their website); less wait time and hassle is the way to go! You can get another $5 off if you donate blood at any Central California Blood Center/mobile drive today till January 1 (Find locations here).
