TROY — The Miami County Park District (MCPD)’s popular holiday light display has returned for it’s fifth season at Lost Creek Reserve on State route 41 in Troy.

The Holiday Lights at Lost Creek Reserve opened on Nov. 25 and will be open on weekends through Dec. 23. Located at the historic Knoop Homestead at 2645 E. State Route 41, the display offers a 1.25-mile driving tour featuring over 60 different light displays, many of which are animated.

The exact number of lights used in the displays is unknown, MCPD Executive Director J. Scott Myers said.

“We’ve never gotten a count,” he said. “It’s got to be well over 100,000 lights.”

The display will be open from 6 to 9 p.m. on weekends Dec. 8 through Dec. 10, Dec. 15 through Dec. 17 and Dec. 22 through Dec. 23. Additional days for 2023 will be Monday through Thursday, Dec. 18 through Dec. 21.

Cost is $10 per car or $30 for 15 passenger vans (cash only). More information can be found online at

“Around 7,000 to 8,000 cars will go through during the season,” Myers said. “That generally will be around 20,000 to 25,000 people come through.”

New displays for this year include lights on the climbing tower and zip line.

“We’ve got other new things too, but that’s the big draw,” Myers said. “That is now our biggest display out there.”

“We work with a local company called Nightscapes,” he said. “They start about Halloween, so it takes a good three or four weeks from Halloween to Thanksgiving to get them installed, between their staff and our staff.”

“It’s an awesome experience,” Myers said. “It’s a lot of fun.”
