Hartford, CT. – This Thursday, January 3 from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m., Holiday Light Fantasia in Hartford will say “thank you” to the men and women who have served or are serving our country in the U.S. military by offering FREE admission to all veterans and active service personnel.

Regular hours are from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Since November, thousands have enjoyed a dazzling collection of more than 1 million lights along a two-mile drive through Goodwin Park, 1130 Maple Ave. in the South end of Hartford, Conn.
