CALHOUN, La. (KNOE) - ‘Tis the season for some holiday cheer, and Candy Cane Lane is back to bring some joy to the ArkLaMiss.

The annual event is a mile-long wooded drive decorated with over one million lights. People far and wide turn out every year for this seasonal attraction.

“We’re pretty pumped. We’ve heard a lot about this place. This is our first time coming. So, with everything going it’s pretty nice to get out and about with the kids,” Brandon Randall said.

Candy Cane Lane is part of the Louisiana Holiday Trail of Lights, a partnership of eight festive cities celebrating the holidays in North Louisiana.

One family drove almost 3 hours from Leonville just to see what all the hype is about.

“The wife had seen it on Facebook, and made us just a little trip to come,” Chris Trahan said.

The unique Christmas attraction features a variety of jaw-dropping displays, including a lighted tunnel you can drive through. Kids and adults we spoke with shared their excitement about going.

“Because I get to see a bunch of candy canes,” Marley West exclaimed.

“They love anything shiny, so this is the perfect theme for them right here,” Randall said.

Others were just thrilled to find some safe holiday fun amid this global health crisis.

“I’m excited. I’m just trying to get in some holiday spirit,” Arlisha Malone said.

Candy Cane Lane is open every night until January 2 from 6:00 PM – 10:00 PM.

The cost is $20 per vehicle and $40 per commercial vehicle. They are currently only accepting cash. No trailers are allowed through the drive-through lights and they ask that no vehicles over 30 feet in length drive through without prior approval.

The trail is located on 170 Highway 151 North.
