This year’s 50 Days of Lights at West Baden Springs Hotel kicks off with the annual tree lighting and doesn’t stop until 2016. Plenty of festivities abound from live musical performances to appearances by Santa and Mrs. Claus – and that’s just the celebration in the Atrium. The ambiance of this historic hotel and its 40 foot tall tree; Sarah Stivers and a Brass Quintet; and ornament making and cookie decorating for the kids – plus a few other surprises will usher in the holidays in grand fashion.

50 Days of Lights

If it’s festive, it happens during our 50 Days of Lights. A 7-foot-tall gingerbread house, an elaborate Victorian village and visits with Santa and Mrs. Claus create a holiday wonderland.
