Knoebels announces the return of ‘Joy Through the Grove’

ELYSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – “Joy Through the Grove” is returning this holiday season at Knoebels Amusement Park.

The Christmas light experience will begin on November 24 and run through December 31, but will not operate on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.

Visitors will drive through a two-mile path that features over 500 illuminated pieces and custom Knoebels-themed displays.

“Guests joining us this year will enjoy some brand-new scenes mixed in with fan favorites,” said Joy Through the Grove project lead, Jon Slodysko. “We’ve enhanced many returning scenes, and are looking forward to debuting a new feature as you exit the campground area of the display.”
