Since 2002. The annual Southern Lights Stroll will take place as the kick-off event for the annual Southern Lights holiday festival. As the only evening of Southern Lights when the public is allowed to experience a major portion of the lighted route on foot, visitors may choose to run, walk or stroll their way through thousands of dazzling holiday lights on the grounds of the Kentucky Horse Park. Three Way Racing will provide the chip timing for the competitive 5K race, and awards will be given to winners in various age categories. Additional activities include complimentary Mini Train Express rides, refreshments, prize drawings and more. A food drive for God’s Pantry Food Bank and a local animal shelter will be held in conjunction with this event. All participants are asked to bring non-perishable items to help local families and animals in need. Registration for the 5K race is $30 for adults and $15 for children ages 7-12. Registration for the stroll/walk is $25 for adults and $10 for children ages 7-12. There is no charge for children 6 and under. Online registration has concluded for this year's event. Walk-up registration begins at 5pm, and a limited number of t-shirts may be available, as well. The 5K race begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by the recreational walk/stroll at 6:35 p.m. Check-in is at the park’s Visitor Center. A limited number of t-shirts are available but are expected to be gone at some point prior to the race. Strollers, wagons and dogs on leash are welcome. All proceeds from the Southern Lights Stroll support the Kentucky Horse Park Foundation.
