Christmas Lights Display at Fifth Third Ballpark
Last night I packed the kids into the mini-van (how domestic) and we went over to Fifth Third Ballpark in Comstock Park. During the Christmas Holiday season, one of the things we like to do is drive around looking at the Christmas Light displays. Some neighborhoods really pull out all of the stops. At this time of year, the ballpark puts on the Christmas Light drive-thru exhibit display and it is a fun little trip for the whole family.
Over a million Christmas lights set up in countless displays from the typical reindeer, elves and snowmen to Santa in Airplanes and Helicopters dropping presents and moose kicking a field goal! One of my favorite displays was Santa catching a fish and reeling it into his boat. Its amazing what they can do these days. Admission is $15 per car/van and you can stop in at AJs Family Fun Center to meet ole Saint Nick himself. The kids will have a blast.
Updated December 2013: It’s 16th year, the Christmas Lite Show offers more than a mile of holiday lights for $15 per car (additional charges for limos and buses). The shows run 6 to 10 p.m. nightly through Jan. 4.
AJs Family Fun Center is located at the entrance to the ball park and during the summer months offer karting, mini golf, batting cages, bumper boats and a video arcade. Its a fun place for office or private parties or just bring the whole family for an afternoon of enjoyment outdoors. They can be contacted at 616-785-0077.
