Christmas at Panther Creek, one of the area’s biggest and brightest holiday light displays, returns this Saturday and runs through January 2. The park will be open nightly from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. for viewing of the lights.
The event, launched in 2003, consists of a 1.15-mile lighted driving tour with more than 50 displays and 500,000 lights.
Admission is $5 per vehicle (cash only) and supports five Daviess County nonprofit organizations. The 2022 recipients are: Wendell Foster, Joe Ford Nature Center, Southern Oaks Elementary PTO, Elite SAR Training, and Owensboro Regional Recovery.
Panther Creek Park is located at 5160 Wayne Bridge Road.
More than $38,000 was raised through last season’s Christmas at Panther Creek, the second-highest amount ever generated from the event. A record amount of $49,300 was raised in 2020, while the prior record was set the year before with $20,840.
