Like an eccentric uncle, the holidays often sneak up on people and leave tinsel wherever they go. Deck the halls with today's Groupon: for $6, you get admission for a car, SUV, or minivan with up to eight passengers at Jingle Bell Drive in Olathe (up to a $12 value).
Jingle Bell Drive harnesses more than half a million lights to illuminate its half-mile evening path of enchanting seasonal spectacles. After deactivating headlights, vehicles slowly inch through a light- and cone-lined trail boasting more than 100 new displays, a 150-foot color-changing tunnel, and Christmas trees adorned with thousands of extremely patient fireflies. Throughout each voyage, 96.9 FM spins a plethora of beloved Christmas and wintertime tunes synchronized to the drive-through park's exhibitions. Jingle Bell Drive brightens holiday evenings seven nights a week between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve, or until a hibernating Y2K realizes it forgot to set its alarm.
