    Starry Nights benefit Shelby Farms Park Conservancy

    Adam Armstrong - Action News 5 -

    Come witness the tradition that is Starry Nights at Shelby Farms Park Nov. 23 – Dec. 28.

    Over 2.5 million lights light up the sky in the Mid-South’s largest holiday light show.

    This year, after viewing new exhibits, you can take a ride on a camel, visit the Starry Petting Zoo, take photos with Santa and visit the magical Mistletoe Village.

    Mondays are closed to cars for Run, Walk, Ride nights to see the show on foot or by bicycle.

    The show will be closed on Monday, November 26 but will reopen on Tuesday, November 27.

    At Mistletoe Village you can experience the magic of the holidays. Grab a cup of hot chocolate while you visit Santa, do some holiday shopping with local artisans, visit the Starry Petting Zoo and even ride a camel. Afterward, gather around a cozy campfire and roast s'mores while you listen to carols in the village.

    New this year is the Starry 4K Fun Run. After racing through the lights, you'll cross the snowy finish line and be rewarded with complimentary hot chocolate. To register for the Starry 4K, visit starry4k.racesonline.com.

    You can also see the show by horse drawn carriage or hay ride. Carriages seat up to 6 passengers.

    All proceeds from Starry Nights and the new Starry 4k Fun Run benefit Shelby Farms Park Conservancy, the nonprofit organization that manages and operates Shelby Farms Park + Shelby Farms Greenline.

    Prices for Mondays (Run, Walk, Ride Nights): $5 per person or $20 per family

    Prices for Tuesday-Sunday: $20 per car; $50 per large van/small bus; $150 per charter bus.

    Tickets can be purchased at the gate as you enter the show, or you can purchase them ahead of time and skip the line. You can pre-purchase tickets online or at the Shelby Farms Park Visitor Center.
