This year's show features 24 dates in late November and throughout December. Doors open each day at 4:30 p.m. Last admission at 8:30 p.m. Lights go dark at 9 p.m.

In addition to being a beloved community and regional event, the HLS serves as a major fundraiser for RBG and creates significant economic impact to the Janesville area.
