Patti's 1880's Settlement is known for serving up delicious food in a great atmosphere.  Each year they go all out for Christmas, and even though it's July, they went ahead and shared their Festival of Lights dates.

A Christmas Tradition

Every year there's a tradition in my husband's family to go down to Patti's to see the Festival of Lights.  If you've never been you HAVE to go! When I say they go all out for Christmas, I mean they go ALL out.  I'm talking of hundreds of thousands of individual lights lighting up Grand Rivers Kentucky. And the best part?  It's FREE to enjoy the lights! You don't even have to eat at Patti's to walk through the lights.  Last year we took our son, he was almost 3 months old when we went, and even though he slept through the whole thing, it was fun to take him on our Christmas tradition!

Patti's Announces 2022 Festival of Lights

Let's be honest, it's July and it's HOT outside.  I think just about everyone is dreaming of cooler weather right about now.  If you're thinking about cooler weather, one way to cool down is dreaming of Christmas lights. Here's what Patti's had to say about this year's Festival of Lights:

With the high heat index today lets focus on something cool 😎

Reservations Filling  Up

Now I'll be completely honest, we go every year with my in-laws to Patti's to see the Christmas lights, but we've never actually eaten at Patti's because their reservations fill up SO fast.  This year my Father in law made reservations earlier this month and we could only get lunch reservations for the weekend we're going in December.  So if you want to eat at Patti's while enjoying the Festival of Lights, you'll want to make those reservations now.

State Parks Near the Tri-State You Have to Check Out

As the weather warms up, all I want to do is be outside. We've got several state parks around the Tri-State area, they'd be perfect for a day trip or a camping weekend!
