Christmas Lights Heading to the Ballpark at Jackson

October 12, 2017 - Southern League (SL) - Jackson Generals News Release


Jackson, TN (October 6, 2017) - Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland is making its West Tennessee debut this Christmas at the Ballpark at Jackson. This award-winning Christmas light and music extravaganza is over 2 miles long. From November 17th through January 7th, the maze of lights will glow into the night from dusk to 10PM. Guests simply tune in their radio, and watch the magic unfold as they drive through hundreds of thousands of brilliant LED lights dancing in perfect synchronization with the music filling their vehicle. This unique experience captivates its audience with a perfect unity of sight and sound.

Featured among the lights are huge, custom displays of Santa and his friends from the North Pole on their summer safari. They went on jeep excursions, had diving contests, played keep-away with hippos, lounged around the water hole, and much more! This crew got into some interesting situations and we have the snapshots to prove it.

Shadrack hosted its first light show in 2007. Because of the tremendous response, it has expanded to new locations each year and has continually added new elements to keep the show exciting. This spectacle takes light shows to a whole new level, integrating cutting-edge technology, lights, music, and movement with custom, animated elements featuring 100% environmentally friendly LED lights. Some of the music is even arranged and performed by the talented Shadrack crew.

General Manager of Jackson Generals Baseball, Jason Compton, said, "The Generals are thrilled to partner with Shadrack Productions to bring the biggest Christmas Light display this area has ever seen to Jackson. The Ballpark is the perfect place to host an event like this and we can not wait to flip the switch."

On weekends and select nights, the festivities continue beyond the drive route into Santa's Village where guests can meet Saint Nick himself. Red Art Studios will be there to capture the memories with professional and affordable photos. There will be free activities for kids to enjoy, like a Christmas letter writing station, and festive movies will be playing on the video board inside the stadium. Refreshments, like hot chocolate and popcorn are also available for purchase.

The cost to experience Shadrack's Christmas Wonderland is $25 per carload, $40 for a minibus, limousine or activity van, and school and tour busses are $80. Christmas Wonderland proudly supports local charities.

The Ballpark at Jackson is located at, 4 Fun Place, Jackson, TN 38305. For complete details, updates, and a preview, visit www.ShadrackChristmas.com.
