Westchester held its Winter Wonderland Extravaganza at the Kensico Dam Plaza on Friday.
The 1.2-mile drive-thru experience is filled with thousands of lights, glowing snowballs and a candy cane lane. There was even a 100-foot fully immersive rainbow tunnel.
Eight-year-old Chase kicked off the festivities with the pull of a lever after a scary year.
His mother, Beacon resident Jeanine Geiser, says Chase had a cold that turned into a severe brain infection and it took several neurosurgeries at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital to get him back on his feet.
"We are just ecstatic that we get to spend all the time that we can with him and have him back," Geiser says.
Proceeds from the Winter Wonderland Extravaganza help the Westchester Parks Foundation reinvest in the county's 18,000 acres of green spaces.
"This is a really big fundraiser for us that directly benefits things that the public loves," says Westchester Parks Foundation Deputy Executive Director Christine La Porta.
The event runs from now through New Year's Day.
Reservations are needed for the holiday event.
Tickets are $35 during peak hours and $25 during off-peak hours.
