Westchester’s Winter Wonderland

Kensico Dam Plaza, Valhalla
Through December 31

You don’t have to leave the comfort of your car to witness the wonder that is Westchester’s drive-through holiday light extravaganza. Presented by Westchester Parks Foundation in collaboration with WMCHealth, the Winter Wonderland features a 1.2-mile drive past thousands of shimmering lights to the tune of holiday music on the radio. The kids will love spotting installations ranging from glittering elves and angels to a 50-foot dove, dancing trees, and even a candy cane lane. Perhaps the most beloved destinations during the drive are the 175-foot light tunnel and the 40-foot Christmas tree. New for this year, Snowball the Elf – an interactive character – and Rudolph’s Runway make the experience extra-special.

True to its name, American Christmas goes big for the holiday season.

Cost ranges between $10-$20 per person, and all proceeds go toward several Mount Vernon nonprofit organizations, with over $81,000 being donated last year.
