Experience thousands of Christmas Lights as they light your way down the chairlift and out to the mouth of the tunnel. View movable displays of Santa, reindeer, and other critters. Enjoy the sounds and smells of Christmas by listening to local church choirs/performers entertain as you stand by the warm fire and sip hot chocolate or roast a marshmallow. If children have been good, they can talk to Santa Claus at the mouth of the tunnel. Mosey your way over to the Carter Cabin to hear what Christmas was like over 200 years ago. The Daniel Boone Wilderness Trial Association will have period dressed historians telling stories about the time period of 1775 and talking about the history of the Carter Cabin. Check out one of the older buildings within Scott County. No programs will be held the week of Christmas. Parking is $4 per vehicle and the chairlift is $3 per person. Children 6 and younger ride free. Last ride down on the chairlift will be 9 p.m.
