Overly’s Country Christmas® is not a drive-through light display, rather an unique, old-fashioned, walk-around Christmas Village, filled with traditional sights, sounds, treats and things to do reminiscent of Christmas of long-ago.  However, there is a driveway, lined with lighted displays that accesses the paved parking lot that visitors can enjoy on their way to the paved parking lot.  Visitors waiting in a traffic line are waiting for 1 of 175 parking spots in the paved lot which turns over every 1 to 1.5 hours.  Visitors not choosing to wait in the traffic line may opt for Park and Walk which is parking at their own risk in the Fairgrounds fields and paying a per person charge to enter Christmas Village.

Weekends in December, specifically Saturday evenings, tend to be extremely busy with waiting times to enter the paved parking area and Christmas Village is estimated at 1 – 2 hours, longer with milder weather. During these high volume times, traffic is routed through the fairgrounds roadways.  These roadways are dirt roads and as such, family vehicles may get muddy.

All lines may close early to ensure that everyone waiting can be accommodated.

During high volume times, a Park at Your Own Risk option MAY BE available to park in the fairgrounds fields, weather permitting, and enter Christmas Village with a per person charge. The Park at Your Own Risk field parking areas are accessible through lanes 3 and 5 of the serpentine traffic lane or by entering the fairgrounds through the first entrance to the fairgrounds property off the Greensburg-Mt. Pleasant Road, marked “Bus and Park & Walk Entrance Only”.

Field Parking and Park At Your Own Risk is available ONLY on high volume traffic nights, typically Saturday evenings.

Field parking WILL NOT be available on normal traffic nights and MAY NOT be available if circumstances on the fairgrounds property, such as snow or wet, muddy conditions make the parking area inaccessible or may result in property damage.

All lines may close early to ensure that everyone waiting can be accommodated.
