WEST FARGO — The area's annual Holiday Lights display that used to operate at Fargo's Lindenwood Park will open for the first time on Black Friday at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo.

The display will be open 5-10 p.m. every day from Nov. 25 to Dec. 31.

The Red River Valley Fair Association now owns and operates the Holiday Lights display that was formerly operated by the FM Sertoma Club in Lindenwood Park. The Holiday Lights will be a drive-through lights experience for all ages.

The Holiday Lights attraction, known for its Christmas lights displays, was owned and operated by the Fargo-Moorhead Sertoma Club for over 20 years.

The Red River Valley Fair Association has partnered with Christmas Decor to make your Holidays even brighter this year. With RGB effect lighting, animated displays, multiple drive-through tunnels, and much more spread over 1.5 miles. A portion of the proceeds will still be given to the FM Sertoma Club for their service projects.


Tickets are per vehicle and can be purchased online for $20 per car or $50 per limo/bus. At the gate, tickets are $25 per car and $55 per limo/bus.

Volunteer groups helping work will also be given a portion of the proceeds each night.

You also can't feed leopards, dingoes, alligators, or crocodiles according to city law
