It’s ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter south of Cincinnati! Now through December 30 (closed Christmas Eve and Day), you can enjoy tens of thousands of beautiful lights, the Ark lit up in rainbow colors, and a special Christmas program called “A Reason to Celebrate.” This program, taking place inside the Answers Center at 4:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m., features a short animated film “Encounter the Wonder” and a traditional Christmas carol sing-along with our resident artists, Steve Hess & Southern Salvation. During this time, enjoy singing along to a special candlelight version of “Silent Night.”
For the past several days, Ark guests have been thoroughly enjoying the unique experience of singing along with Southern Salvation by candlelight. Check out this video taken on a smartphone recently at the Ark:
ChristmasTime is free (you only pay $10 for parking*) and is a wonderful event for the whole family. Guests have been pouring in from around the country to celebrate Christmas with us, including many bus tours. We’re thrilled a lot of people are not only having a great time but also are hearing the life-changing message of the gospel through the “Encounter the Wonder” film.
Just 45 minutes away from ChristmasTime at the Ark Encounter is ChristmasTown at the Creation Museum. This spectacular event features a dazzling garden of lights—including two new steel dinosaurs (one is 40 feet long and 15 feet high) designed by Buddy Davis and all lit up in Christmas lights—a live nativity, concerts (select evenings), and more. This event is also free (you only pay $5 for parking*). We encourage you to bring the whole family! It’s west of the Cincinnati Airport.
New this year: parking at the Ark and Creation Museum is free for residents of seven Northern Kentucky counties and one Indiana county.*
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
