Drive-Thru Christmas Lights at The Rock Ranch


Drive-Thru Christmas Lights
December 2015

The Rock Ranch invites families to drive through more than a mile of magical Christmas lights on the farm. This tradition started eight years ago when the late S. Truett Cathy, Founder of Chick-fil-A and The Rock Ranch, purchased a truck load of lights from Lowes and Home Depot during an “After Christmas” sale. He thought folks would enjoy an affordable opportunity to drive through beautifully lit Christmas scenes. This growing lights display gets better and better each year.
