- Get downtown early no matter what your game plan is! We've been lucky enough each year to get a spot in the parking garage right off of Main and Calhoun, but it fillsup fast. Also, people are all really anxious and ready to find a parking spot and get the show on the road. So, if you find yourself waiting in a long-line or driving in circles around various city blocks - BREATHE!
- Don't miss out on the other lights. Just because you don't watch some of the other lighting ceremonies, don't forget to stroll past the other great displays downtown either after you have made your way around NOL, or at a later date when you can relax more and enjoy!
- Eat downtown, but be mindful of the crowds. I do believe that every person in Fort Wayne coming downtown for Night of Lights has one thing on their minds - Coney Island hot dogs! The line is often wrapped around the building, and your chances of sitting down are slim to none unless you watch tables like a hawk. Of course, they are well worth it! I recommend getting your coneys to go and enjoying them at home while cozying up with some Christmas movies, or checking out some of the other great downtown eateries like Pint & Slice, Henry's, and Dash-In.
- Take it all in! I don't want to be repetitive or sound too cheesy, but there really is something magical about Night of Lights. For myself, and my family, the memories of this tradition are some of the best I have, and I suggest you make it a part of you and your family's/significant others/friends' traditions as well! Make a whole night of it and enjoy the start of the holiday season!
Kick off the Holiday Season at Night of Lights 2014!
