POINT PLEASANT — The West Virginia State Farm Museum will wrap up their annual Christmas light show on Sunday, Dec. 15.

The light displays ran from Friday, Dec. 6 through Sunday, Dec. 15 each night from 6-9 p.m. Admission to the drive-thru show is free to the public, but donations are appreciated and will be used to fund the future Christmas light shows.

As previously reported by the Register, 2019 is estimated to be the 19th year for the light displays at the farm museum. Each year, members at the museum change the displays to have a new light show.

The farm museum’s light show is unique in that the displays are not pre-fabricated, but they sting lights around buildings and items at the museum — such as tractors, wagons and antique farm machinery. The structures that are decorated include old log cabins, a blacksmith shop, a wishing well, stables, a one-room schoolhouse, and the County Kitchen.

Santa and Mrs. Claus were staying warm in the kitchen with hot chocolate and cookies. They greeted children at the kitchen and asked them what was on their Christmas wish-list.

There is still time to see the show, which is located north of Point Pleasant on Fairgrounds Road, right across from the Mason County Fairgrounds.
