6 Outdoor holiday light displays to get you in the seasonal spirit
There's still time to check out the holiday lights, whether you're in the city or beyond.

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- The Holiday Light Show at Shady Brook Farm in Yardley is two-mile drive-thru experience through a 130-acre-farm.

The 26-year-old family tradition is put on by fourth-generation farmers. The team creates most of the displays in-house, including their famous "Seven Wonders of the World." Stroll Candy Cane Lane, partake in a socially-distant visit with Santa and enjoy the farmer's market full of baked goodies.
