    Celebrating 24 Years of Roper Mountain Holiday Lights in 2015 Your admission fees, and the generosity of our sponsors, contribute to funds for Rotary Charities and educational programming for the Roper Mountain Science Center.

Are you ready for some magic and holiday excitement with lights, and stars, and Santa? Consider a visit to Roper Mountain Holiday Lights.

2015 marks the 24th year of this great event which has become an upstate tradition for many families.  Open from Thanksgiving night through December 30, Roper Mountain Holiday Lights will entertain you no matter your age!  Start your visit by parking the car and strolling through WinterWonderland.  That’s where you will find lighted walking trails, Santa Claus, a balloon artist, concessions, and giant holiday greeting cards created by local area students.  On selected nights, we’ll also have some of your favorite team mascots,  performances by school groups, and Dog Nights when you can bring your dog for a walk along the lighted paths.  For more details, check out our Event Calendar to see what has been scheduled so far.

After you have visited WinterWonderland, it is easy to get back in your car and continue on to the 1.5 mile drive through the large displays including Candy Cane Lane, Santa’s Sleigh, the Caterpillar, and many other family favorites.  On most nights, you can drive through the lights as often as you wish.  Please be aware, however, that there are some Friday and Saturday nights when visitors may be limited to only one drive through the lights.  While we regret this limitation, it is necessary for traffic control purposes.  It is always our intent to provide visitors with the best possible experience, and to encourage them to come back often in 2015, and in the years ahead.  After all, the funds generated from Holiday Lights are used to distribute back to the Upstate community to benefit and brighten the lives of area children.  For more details, please read below.  Your support is needed and appreciated!Roper Mountain Holiday Lights is a volunteer-driven, 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization co-managed by the Rotary Club of Greenville and the Roper Mountain Science Center Association.  Through the admission fees of our visitors, and the generosity of our sponsors, Holiday Lights ultimately generates funds for Rotary Charities and educational programming for the Roper Mountain Science Center. The 2014 event generated $155,000 which was distributed to Rotary Charities and the Science Center Association. Since its beginning in 1992, Roper Mountain Holiday Lights has given back $2,221,000 to the community to help people, organizations, and education here in the Upstate.  Enjoy our Video of the Holiday Lights experience and all those we help!
