Lake Metroparks Farmpark is continuing its annual Country Light holiday display—but this year it's opting for a drive-thru style presentation.

Guests will be able to drive through an assortment of new and familiar light displays throughout the grounds without having to leave their vehicles.

The event usually features a toy building section, which will continue in a modified way as well.

Guests will be able to purchase toy kits to take home and build when they purchase tickets to the Country Lights Drive-thru event.
