Hamilton's Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum is upping the wow factor of this year's drive-thru holiday light display.
Transforming from Holiday Lights on the Hill to Journey BOREALIS, this year's illuminated spectacle will be a "visual art experience that showcases local and regional new media and light-based artists," says Pyramid Hill.
Overseen by light design company Brave Berlin — part of Cincinnati's BLINK art and light festival — for the past two years, the show has previously included two-and-a-half miles of creative, glowing scenes and projection-mapped sculptural installations. This year's multimedia drive-thru experience will expand to include 1,000,000 lights and immersive holiday art installations, soundtracked to music by the Cincinnati Boychoir and Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra.
And if you're a resident of Hamilton, you can get in for free on Tuesday nights. Starting Tuesday, Nov. 24 and running through Dec. 29, you can bring proof of City of Hamilton residency — e.g. a driver's license or utility bill from October or November — and get in at no cost.
“The holiday lights at Pyramid Hill are a treasure that attract families from across the region,” says Hamilton Mayor Pat Moeller. “We hope Hamiltonians will enjoy the incredible lights with their families, as well as support our small businesses before and after visiting the park.”
Journey BOREALIS opens Nov. 20 and runs 6-9 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 6-10 p.m. Friday-Sunday through Jan. 3. The cost is $20 per carload Monday-Thursday; $25 per carload Friday-Sunday; and $15 per carload for Pyramid Hill members.
Pyramid Hill is located at 1763 Hamilton Cleves Road, Hamilton. More info: journeyborealis.com.
