The inaugural Holiday Fantasy of Lights (HFOL) event was in 1993. It was hosted, installed and operated by the Broward County Parks and Recreation Division and located at Tradewinds Park. The experience was a 1.2 mile drive with twenty six displays and tree lighting. The event was well attended and received positive exit interviews along with requests for more lights and larger displays. This launched the County's commitment to hosting one of the best holiday lights shows in the U.S.
The second edition featured a professionally designed and choreographed display program by Brandano Displays, Inc., the nation's leader in the design and engineering of large-scale holiday lights events. Further investment was made in a new power distribution system. The experience was increased to include over 40 displays, computer- driven animation and drive-thru displays throughout the park.
Over 2,000,000 visitors in over 500,000 cars have driven through the Holiday Fantasy of Lights since 1993. This year after 25 years, two hurricanes, one recession and now a global pandemic the Holiday Fantasy of Lights is one of the most popular events of it's kind and a nationwide model for the development of successful holiday light events.
The event is nearly three miles long and features over 65 larger than life displays, multiple animation techniques, 3-D experiences and large scale spectaculars. HFOL is one of South Florida highest rated and visited family holiday entertainment experiences.
