SPRINGFIELD, MO — The Springfield-Greene County Park Board’s annual 10,000 Candy Cane Lane opens tonight at Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park, 3825 W. Farm Road 146.
The drive-through holiday light event features farm-themed displays and more than 10,000 lights. Candy Cane Lane takes 5-8 p.m. place Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, Dec. 3-5, 10-12 and 17-19. Admission is $5 per vehicle, no buses or limos, please.
Due to ongoing road construction in the area, visitors are advised to plan an alternative route to Rutledge-Wilson Farm Park. Farm Rod 146 (Bennett) is closed between West Bypass and the Farm Park entrance. Access the farm park from the west, from these alternative routes (view a map here):
From W. Sunshine St., head north on McCurry. Turn left onto Old Sunshine Road, and then right on Burks Ave, then right at Farm Road 146, and then you have arrived!
From W. Mt. Vernon St., head south on Orchard Crest Ave., turn right onto Grand St., left onto Farm Road 123, which will merge with Farm Road 146, ending at the Farm Park.
Due to road construction, concessions will not be sold at this year’s Candy Cane Lane, in effort to keep traffic moving.
