They even have parades with lights. Usually they are a lot of fun and change a little every year. From what I understand last year was the last year they were going to do the parades but you never know. They could bring them back if there us enough interest. The parade was always a big draw at night and the streets were always packed. After the parade they have a light show at the main tree by the front gate that changes color during the music they play.

Traffic can be a bit hectic there every time of year, especially during popular festivals. The best place to stay is at Indian Point which is just a 5 minute drive and comes from the opposite direction of the traffic. So if you want to sleep in because of the eggnog the night before Indian Point is the best place to stay.
