Cincinnati offers so many “Can’t Miss” holiday traditions. And this year, my family traveled a short distance to experience a Butler County favorite: Holiday Lights on the Hill at Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum.
Located in Hamilton, the 19th Annual Holiday Lights on the Hill is a two-mile driving tour of holiday lights. This year, Pyramid Hill collaborated with Brave Berlin, the creative directors behind Luminosity and Blink, to make Holiday Lights on the Hill more spectacular than ever.
There are other drive-thru lights tours in Cincinnati; however, it’s the sculptures you’ll see during your drive that set Holiday Lights on the Hill apart from other light displays in the area.
This one-of-a-kind drive-thru light display also boasts of an enchanted swan lake. This scene is straight from a fairy tale with a gorgeous lit swam on a crystal clear wintery lake. Another unique display is designed to stimulate an ice skating rink filled with skaters of all ages. It’s blue and white twinkling lights beckon you to join in the fun.
The best part? My family stayed snuggled and warm in our car — no need to bundle up with hats, mittens and coats. With seasonal music on the radio, we took a leisurely Sunday evening drive through a magical holiday wonderland (in the already magical sculpture park).
Pyramid Hill is one of Cincinnati’s greatest hidden gems, and its annual light display showcases the sculpture park in a new and brilliant light (literally). Definitely make a point of making the drive up to Butler County for this one-of-a-kind light display!
Holiday Lights on the Hill is open daily until January 1st. The costs are as follows: Monday – Thursday 6 – 9pm $20/carload, Friday – Sunday 6-10pm $25/carload. Members $15.
