Fantasy of Lights - Vasona Park

One of the local parks here (Vasona park in Los Gatos) has a Fantasy of Lights event where they put nice Christmas light displays and you drive through them at <5 miles per hour with the matching music to go on a local radio station.

The light displays were amazing! The kids were initially entertained, but they were not happy with the open passenger side window. While it accomodated the photo/videographer, it made the van too cold for their liking. This was followed by questions like

"how much longer do we have to drive like this?"
"are we going to stay here forever?"

etc. etc..

It is a good idea to teach your kids a few patience lessons before taking them on this drive...

Here is a video and some photos of the trip.



























Thoroughly enjoyable!!

~nm,

P mode with ISO 1600 (no flash)

it would have been great if we were allowed to get out of the vehicle and use a tripod.. somehow these lights are as tricky as fireworks..

we stay in cupertino, 10 mins from los gatos.

:)
