Find Your Inner Flower Child at Peace, Love & Lights Holiday Drive-Thru
Find your inner flower child at Peace, Love & Lights, a drive-thru holiday experience at the historic site of the 1969 Woodstock festival in Bethel, New York.
The lights show, that spans more than a mile, is filled with LED lighting and animated displays, featuring a spectacular 120-foot Twinkle Tunnel and themed areas, including: Groovy Way, an Enchanted Forest, Snowflake Alley and Santa’s Workshop.
“Bethel Woods has always been focused on building community and creating shared experiences for the whole family,” said Eric Frances, CEO, Bethel Woods Center for the Arts. “Since opening in 2006, we have grown our programming beyond the summer season. Now we are delighted to take the first steps toward making Bethel Woods a winter holiday destination for the region,” Frances continued.
“This light show is a new signature event for our Sullivan Catskills, visitors from all over the region—potentially generating an estimated economic impact of $7 to $9 million into our local economy (Destinations International Event Impact Calculator),” stated Roberta Byron-Lockwood, President and CEO, Sullivan Catskills Visitors Association. Byron-Lockwood added, “COVID-19 may have impacted our tourism landscape, but we are innovative and will work diligently to bring back our travel industry; thus affording the necessary revenue to our communities and small businesses. This holiday spectacular will spotlight the Sullivan Catskills as a four-season destination, responsibly welcoming visitors back to experience all that we have.”
