Mark the calendar! Santa will be making a special visit to the Wonderland of Lights on November 24th to help kick-off another great show with the Utica Road Runners Safety Run.
Right before Santa heads back to the North Pole to prepare to deliver all those presents he will be stopping at the Wonderland of Lights with his good friend Buddy the Elf on December 23rd from 5:30-8:30pm!
As always, look for Santa’s Mailbox by the gatehouse as you enter Wonderland of Lights... Drop off your letters to Santa and receive a personalized letter in return. Don’t forget to leave Santa your name and address! He gets a lot of letters this time of year and wants to make sure everyone gets a letter back!
Each year the light show attracts more than 30,000 delighted children and adults and raises valuable funds to support RCIL’s programs and services. If you and/or your business or organization are interested in being a part of next year’s show, please contact RCIL for more information
This event couldn’t take place without our dedicated volunteers — and we’re always looking for more! You can help with the setup of our small light displays or spend an evening greeting happy show attendees. Please contact Diana at RCIL to learn how you can become involved.
Kids! Bring your letters for Santa to the Wonderland of Lights, and drop it in the special Santa mailbox during the light show. Santa will send a personalized letter back!

On December 1, 1949 WKTV went on the air. It was the 93rd television station in the country to sign on. Originally WKTV was affiliated with all four networks in operation; NBC, ABC, CBS and DuMont. In a few years DuMont was out of business and the CBS affilacy was taken by a Syracuse station. WKTV stayed an affiliate of NBC and ABC until 1970. Today, WKTV remains one of the oldest members on the NBC family.
These stunning light displays are a wonderful way to help a great cause and illuminate your community during the holiday season.
