Panther Creek Park, located at 5160 Wayne Bridge Road, brings a lighted holiday tradition. For a donation, families can drive through the park and enjoy over 500,000 lights on display.

The cost per vehicle increased from a $3 donation in years past to a $5 donation this year, with a portion of the profits donated to Daviess County nonprofits.

“We have increased the per vehicle fee in attempt to provide more financial support to our nonprofit agencies and to order some new displays in 2020,” said Daviess County Parks Director Ross Leigh.

Wagon rides are available nightly and “you never know when we could expect a visit at the park from Santa Claus,” Leigh said.

The nonprofits who will receive donations for 2019 are:

Week 1 (Nov. 29-Dec. 5) Burns Middle School Dance Team
Week 2 (Dec. 6- Dec. 12) Daviess County Diabetes Coalition
Week 3 (Dec. 13-Dec. 19) Sorgho Elementary PTO
Week 4 (Dec. 20-26) St. Benedicts Homeless Shelter
Week 5 (Dec. 27- Jan. 2) Bishop Sonneker Knights of Columbus #10725

Christmas at Panther Creek is open nightly from 6 – 9 p.m.
