Tanaka Farms - HIKARI - A FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
Updated: Nov 30, 2020
I love Tanaka Farms from the first time I ever went there. It was about six years ago I had gone on a field trip with my MOMS Club group. Fast forward to today and I am still going to Tanaka Farms but now I'm going with my Oc Blog Mommy Tribe.
With the pandemic this year and all the shutdowns, Tanaka Farms has adapted each step of the way without flaw, in my opinion. For the holidays this year, they have created a drive-thru Hikari Festival of Lights.
We had a great time driving through and seeing all the lights and kicking off the Holiday season. The Farm was filled with lights from top to bottom. We drove through Candy Cane Lane, we also saw Strawberry lights, farm animals, Santa, and more.
Tanka Farms also offers snacks when you first enter. Oh, the temptation. Hot cocoa, cookies, nachos, and other items.
For some reason, I didn't bring jackets or blankets to keep us warm. I wish I had! We could have rolled down the windows so my boys could have stuck their heads out to gaze at the lights. Though my little guy did climb into the front seat with me and looked at all the lights in wonder.
It was a wonderful evening filled with fun and beautiful lights, beauty and fun.
