Storybook Island prepares for Christmas lights

RAPID CITY, S.D. (KOTA TV) - Each year, Storybook Island decorates their nearly 8.5 acres of children's fun with Christmas lights.

Christmas lights are already up at Storybook Island.

The lights took almost 2 months to fully set up across the park.

All of the features and sets are wrapped in colorful lights and Christmas decor to celebrate the holiday season.

Hot coco, cider, a carousel, the train ride, and the gift shop will be open for use.

Executive Director Connie LeZotte said that the $3 entrance fee is a fundraiser for the park, but also a gift to the community.

"They love it, all of the colors and the pictures. They can ride the train, they can ride the carousel," said LeZotte. "It's just a lot of fun. It's a great precursor to Christmas Day."
