If we didn't already know that Santa lived at the North Pole, it would be easy to mistake his residence (or at least his pre-Christmas getaway) as Freeman Park in Idaho Falls.

Freeman's annual Festival of Lights display opens to the public on Nov. 24. The tour will be open daily from 6-10 p.m. through Christmas Eve.

I.F.'s new drive-thru display offers 100-plus festive scenes, complete with equally festive music, horse-drawn wagon rides and a light show to remember. Head to the park's heated pavilion and you can even chat it up with Jolly Old St. Nick.

Holiday snacks and hot cocoa will be available every night until Dec. 24. 

Tickets can be purchased upon entry into the park. The entrance fee is $10 per carload or $15 for oversized or commercial-sized vehicles.

(Freeman Park will remain open to sledding for the duration of the festival. The river walk adjacent to the Snake River will also remain open.)

For more details, visit the Festival of Lights Facebook page, and be sure to tune in to 93.5 FM for the Festival of Lights Music as you tour the wintry wonderland.
