LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Southern Lights holiday festival celebrates its 20th anniversary when the glittering holiday event opens Nov. 22 at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.

More than 115,000 people in more than 27,000 vehicles attend each year.

The driving route is open from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. nightly. The festival continues until Dec. 31.

Following the driving tour, families can park their vehicles and visit other attractions, including holiday craft merchants, a gift shop, a petting zoo and pony and camel rides.

The cost is $15 per passenger car Sunday through Thursday evenings and $20 per vehicle on Friday and Saturday nights.

All proceeds support the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation.

For one night only on Nov. 21, visitors can view the lights on foot.
