Castel Grisch Winery Festival of Lights 2021
The other night we went to see the Castel Grisch Winery Festival of Lights 2021 located in Watkins Glen, New York. It cost $20 for a car of 6 people to attend. You can purchase your tickets online here. You must select the time frame you can go, and is available on Friday through Sunday until end of January. You can also follow them on Facebook here.
It took us an hour to drive there and then about 20 minutes to wait in line to get to the entrance of the winery. They had multiple people helping to direct traffic into the winery from both directions, keeping cars close. We overheard them say how they were having about 130 cars every 30 minutes. So if you are going prepare to be there for about and hour or more. We got to drive around the whole area in about 30 minutes.
It really is a great light show. They have multiple displays that we have never seen before. Our kids ages 10 and 13 were very excited and enjoyed it very much, as did my husband and myself. I think our favorite part, and the part that caught me eye when I seen it online, was the Dino exhibit. They have those animatronic dinosaurs that move and make noise. Super cool!
They also have their tasting room open to the public as well. I did read online you were allowed to bring your children in, in case you wondered. They have fun festive drinks for everyone!
I’m sharing more images below that I took. If you have not gone yet I would suggest not viewing the photos here and waiting to be awed when you get there!
