Jolly Holiday Lights is a drive-through holiday light display that is annually set up by Make-A-Wish Iowa in Des Moines' Water Works Park. Since it began in 1995, the event has raised enough money to grant about 638 wishes to Iowa kids!

Don’t forget to get your picture taken with Santa ($10) and enjoy a cookie and cocoa at Santa’s Wish Shop! The gift shop, located at the end of the route, has snacks, Santa and small gift items. All proceeds benefit Make-A-Wish Iowa.
