a night at candylane

I love when Hersheypark is all decked out in it's Christmas finery! I love the lights and the music! I don't even care if we don't get on any rides, I just love the festiveness. We did get on rides the night we went though because the crowds were slim, the masks were donned, the lights were lit! It was happening! I pretty much wanted to see Santa right away. Gotta make sure we get in there to see the Big Man! It was a little different this year as is everything these days.... he was up on a stage in a sleigh and wearing a mask.... but we saw him! Then we also had to go and visit with his reindeer... All with not any real lines. The rest of the night was all about rides and then it was all about the lights! Almost all of us hopped on the ferris wheel for the first time in forever and I have never loathed a ride more! What I wasn't expecting was Letty and David's tears. I mean yeah maybe David. But Letty? They were petrified. As am I.  Ugh it gives me the shivers just thinking about it. Never again!

I sure hope to get back there again before the season ends, but who knows! Just no ferris wheel.
