Winter Wonderland - Topeka, Kansas
Christmas sea serpent, light house and Viking ship in Winter Wonderland
This display near the end of Topeka's Winter Wonderland is animated. The Viking ship at the right is rowing and
Cannon balls are being fired at the sea serpent. One is just entering the water between the lighthouse and serpent.

2023 is the 26th year for Topeka's Winter Wonderland, a fundraiser for TARC (A provider of support for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities). In 2014, TARC's Winter Wonderland XVII set a new fundraising record. Over 11,000 vehicles enjoyed the two mile holiday light display to benefit TARC - setting a new record for funds raised at Winter Wonderland - $167,582.01

Located in Topeka, Kansas' Lake Shawnee Campground, Winter Wonderland runs from 6 - 10 PM each night from November 22 until December 31, 2023 (Closed 11/27, 12/4, & 12/11). Admission to Winter Wonderland is $10 per car and $20 for buses.  Advance tickets are available at Milk & Honey Coffee, Dialogue Coffee House, and at the TARC office, 2701 SW Randolph Avenue, Topeka, KS 66611. 

This holiday display is usually described as a 2 mile drive through light displays. But that is misleading - to add up to 2 miles, would mean that a long entrance drive with the names of the sponsors in Christmas lights is included. Twice. The real Christmas displays are less than half that distance. But I still recommend Winter Wonderland for a pleasant Drive while helping TARC.

When you enter Winter Wonderland, they will tell you what station to tune your car radio to, to hear Christmas Music and a message about TARC and the sponsors.

To reach Winter Wonderland, from SE 29th Street, drive south on SE East Edge Road. Turn west onto East Edge Road.
