Christmas at the Galt House Hotel is a holiday event so spectacular it was featured on the Travel Channel's "Christmas Crazy" special and named the second year in a row as "One of the Top 100 Events in North America" by ABA ( American Bus Association ).
The KaLightoscope Christmas is the featured attraction among many other suprises including the Snow Fairy Princess Castle, Christmas Village and new this year, Peppermint Express Kiddie Train which travels through the Candy Cane Forest and inside children will be greeted by Mr. Sugar Pine, the talking tree.
The KaLightoscope Christmas attraction is all handmade by over 30 Chinese artisans from Zingong, China that take an ancient art of luminary making and westernize it for the event. The attraction features a massive display of larger-than-life, holiday themed luminaries with interactive components. The pieces range in height from 1 foot to over 30 feet. The hero piece is the nativity scene that moves guests to tears. The unique exhibit encompasses a 15,000-square-foot pavilion with 8 different themed areas. Over six miles of colored and patterned fabrics and four miles of wire and internal lighting framing are used in constructing the structures. Many pieces are made on site at the Galt House Hotel every year.
The holiday tradition begins November 16th, 2013 through January 1st, 2014. Each year the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky welcomes the holidays in a big way!
