Christmas Lights on Castle

All,

Can anyone confirm the last day the castle at MK will be lit? We arrive January 04th.

No, I don't think so. Most guesses are they will be lit through about January 6.

I give a 50% chance of them being lit after Jan. 2.

They're usually up for the first 5-7 days of January so hopefully you'll get to see them!

During our January trip (6th-14th) the lights were on the first day or two and gone the rest of the week.

The dates the lights are on in January varies every year.

And, it has been known to change based solely on the weather conditions at the time.
