Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights opens for 26th year


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – With 63 elaborate light displays this year, the Ritzy’s Fantasy of Lights is sure to bring some holiday joy to the Tri-State.

The money raised as part of the drive-through light show goes to support Easterseals, helping pay for physical, occupational, and speech therapy services for people in the Tri-State with disabilities who couldn’t otherwise afford them.

The Fantasy of Lights will be open nightly through January 1, except December 4 when it will only be open for the “Bright Lights for Easterseals” 5K and 1mile family-fun walk.


Sundays-Thursdays: 5-9 p.m.
Fridays, Saturdays, Christmas Eve, and Christmas Day: 5-10 p.m.

Admission is $7 per car at the gate.

Tickets are also available at Evansville Ritzy’s locations.

Admission for vehicles with 7-14 people is $10 and admission for 15 people or more is $25.

For discounted pricing on 50 tickets or more, call 812-437-2607.

This year’s event will include two special activity nights, including the Romain GMC “Polar Bear Express” which will operate 5-9 p.m. the first four Mondays in December. The Polar Bear Express is a party bus limousine provided by SUV Limousine, featuring Santa who will read a story about the light displays. The cost is $5 per person.
