I know it is early yet, but the Holiday Season is a busy time for many. So I just wanted to announce the date and location for our 3rd Annual MASSC Holiday Lights Dinner & Drive so that folks will have plenty of notice to fit it into their holiday plans.

This year we will do the Holiday Lights Display at the Herr's Snack Factory in Nottingham, PA (located about 30 miles west of Wilmington, DE).

The date is Saturday, December 5, 2009.

I am still researching a spot for dinner, looking for a place large enough to accomodate our group without requiring pre-payment upfront.

If anyone lives in the local area and can help with finding a restaurant for dinner, please let me know.

Please post here if you think you will be able to attend. (I'd like an idea of how large the group will be to help in planning the dinner.)

I have to check with Spag on whether he would like to combine the Piggy Bowl Run with this event or keep it separate, as that is his event.

Still time to work out the details, I just wanted to get the date out there for folks to mark their calendars.

The address for the factory is: (I assume the light show also)
20 Herr Drive
Nottingham, PA 19362-9788

I post this, because when I went to google maps and put in "Nottingham, PA"... well lets just say you are better off using the Zip code when mapping this out!

Original MASSC

This would be our 4th year for holiday lights - the first was Bethlehem, PA in '06 where we tried to make a star.

eh, so I can't count. And I didn't even start this thread before my morning coffee, which would have been my normal excuse. :willy:

This sounds pretty interesting. Where does the drive take ya through?
The Holiday Lights Drive will be through the Herr's Snack Factory in Nottingham, PA.

Herr's Makes the Holiday Brighter
This free driving tour incorporates more than 180,000 gleaming lights. This year's presentation features a special section of spectacular animated lights and an enchanted forest of gingerbread men, gumdrops and candy canes. Classic favorites include oversized falling snowflakes, delightfully hung Christmas balls, a nativity scene and the famous 12-foot wreath and giant bow adorning the snack factory warehouse. Perhaps even more recognized is a Norway spruce that stands 60 feet high at the entrance to Herr's. Bearing more than 1,500 red lights, "Big Red," as the crew refers to it, serves as a beacon of holiday cheer that can be seen for miles. Make a reservation for the free guided tour of this snack factory.
The drive from dinner to the Herr's Snack Factory will depend on where we end up having dinner, which has not been selected yet.

I will update the thread as the date gets closer and more details are figured out.

Thanks Jeremy! You are correct, this is not Longwood Gardens.

This is my annual DRIVE THROUGH Holiday Lights trip, where we all put our tops down and drive through a lights display in the freezing cold. :lol:

(Last year we went to Hershey, previous year was Flemington, NJ, first year was Bethlehem/Allentown, PA.)
