Holiday Lights at the Lake opens at the Coralville Reservoir on Thanksgiving


Holiday Lights at the Lake opens to the public on Thanksgiving.

The mile-long walk or drive-through holiday light show then runs nightly through New Year’s Eve at West Overlook Campground at Coralville Lake.

Visitors can walk through on Wednesdays or drive through on all other days. The admission price for a Wednesday walk-through is $5. Admission on other evenings for cars, vans and SUVs is $10, large vans $20, mini-buses or small limos $30, or chartered and school buses or large limos $50. Hours are Sunday through Thursday 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. Tickets may be purchased through Eventbrite, or cash at the gate. Proceeds benefit The Bird House Hospice Home of Johnson County.

New this year to Holiday Lights at the Lake is the addition of “Memory Lane”, an area where community members can make a donation in memory of their loved one who has passed.
