What do Christmas and baseball have in common? Some fans might identify with this better than others, but both inspire faith in the improbable and even the impossible. There’s magic on the diamond and in the North Pole, and both Christmas and baseball make you feel like a kid again. Perhaps the biggest commonality is Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland because this place in Sevierville, Tenn., at Smokies Stadium features some big-league Christmas lights.
Shadrack’s Christmas Wonderland’s mission is simple: Spread some holiday cheer. They certainly deliver! Even after Christmas they’re still going strong all the way into early January. You can catch Shadrack’s in Tennessee (Sevierville, Jackson, and Johnson City), North Carolina (Charlotte and Tryon), or Pennsylvania (Pittsburgh).
If you’ve ever seen the classic movie called “Christmas Vacation,” you’ll be pleased to know that this place has a little bit more than 25,000 imported Italian twinkle lights. Yes, every little light IS twinkling, and strobing, and jumping, and changing colors. If you can’t quite visualize it yet (or you didn’t understand the movie reference), you’ll just have to come and see for yourself!
This is a little more than Clark up on the roof blinding Todd and Margo. This is hundreds of thousands of lights. All tediously programmed and positioned and set to music to give you a show you can’t see anywhere else. You can program your car stereo to a custom radio station and see just how choreographed all of this exterior illumination really is.
As you drive through here, you need to keep your head on a swivel because this light show is all around you.
Your ticket is good for everyone in your vehicle, up to eight people, so this is a great activity to do with those Cousin Eddies who have basically set up camp at your house. It really is a joy for all ages!
Ingles Markets is proud to present this spectacular show again this year. You can get more info and your tickets online at ShadrackChristmas.com. So, keep that holiday spirit alive just a little bit longer and head to Shadrack’s for a truly magical Christmas Wonderland. Your weekend is waiting on the Ingles Open Road.
