Mooseheart is a100-acre residential facility and school for children in need, whose parents, for one reason or another, are unable to care for them.  This organization has a mission to provide quality education and a loving, nurturing home enviroment for the children they care for.

For the seventh year, Mooseheart seeks to brighten the lives of the residents that live on campus, and bring joy to the surrounding communities, through their holiday light festival! There are strings of colorful lights adorning trees and buildings, and over 80 displays lighting a 1.8 mile route through the Mooseheart campus.  There's even a 3D display you can view using glasses which are available for purchase at the start of the route.  Perhaps best of all, you can stay warm in your car to view the festive scene! The cost is $10/car which includes admission to the light show, and on select dates, you can also visit with Santa at the fieldhouse!  There are also Christmas cookies to enjoy, holiday music, hot chocolate, and even a little craft for the children to make as a souvenier of their experience. 

The light festival is up and running through December 31st, so don't miss an opportunity to visit, and support a great cause.  All the proceeds will be directed towards Mooseheart's operating budget so they can continue to provide quality care and training for the children who live there.
