Holiday light show opens at Kennywood
Friday at 5 p.m. is opening of the second annual Kennywood Holiday Lights show.
The event features 1,000,000 lights, some midway rides, foods, an area for kids to write letters to Santa, cookie decorating, a model train display, memorabilia from "It's a Wonderful Life" - and, of course, Santa Claus.
A holiday light show starts every half hour in the area surrounding the Lagoon.
Park officials said that the light displays are connected by more than 12 miles of extension cords -- enough to connect the park to Heinz Field on the North Shore.
The event continues from 5 to 9 p.m. every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night through Dec. 30, plus Dec. 26 and 27.
Admission is $15.99; a $2 discount if you buy tickets in advance at participating Giant Eagle locations. Children age 2 and under free, so is parking. Details: www.kennywood.com.
