This is how it feels to walk among the GLOW festive lights – and more lights across the border

If you did the car version of the GLOW holiday lights last year, consider this a trailer (make it a movie trailer for driving a car) for the 2021 version.

The GLOW festive festival returns to the Minnesota Convention Center from Nov 18 to Jan 2, but the event is a walk-through event, with more displays, more food options, and a lot more sparkle. GLOW claims to have over a million lights and they twinkle in animal shapes, trees, buildings, a labyrinth and a three-story “Luminous Palace”.

As promoter of the event, Randy Levy, said on Tuesday night, “You can see much more when you walk around than through the windshield.”

We took a walk through GLOW last week and found kids playing in the Reindeer Run maze in the illuminated playground, climbing the Glow Palace ramps and stairs, and spinning the bicycles that power the lights on the Bright Bikes display. Adults and children alike had fun combing the chains of dangling purple lights on the Northern Lights display. Santa wasn’t too busy that night, but he has a nice home to visit that has scenes of some of the figures that adults might recognize at the 8th floor holiday exhibit in downtown Minneapolis in Daytona in the 1960s.

A favorite stop was Blooming Flowers, a huge field of light that changes colors in sync with the music.

There are cocoa and biscuits available at many stops, including Mrs. Klaus, who also sold s’mores kits with two treats in each can. The John Deere Pavilion at Machinery Hill is temporarily a Kowalski hot chocolate igloo.

State Fair Food and Drinks served corn, nut rolls, cheese curd, and deep-fried pickles on preview night. Pickles pair well with Holiday Gingerbread Ale, brewed by Elm Creek Brewing for GLOW, which is sold (along with wine and other beers). There were also always cute brownies available for hockey moms.

More food vendors have been added since preview, including mini donuts, egg rolls, dumplings, a bucket of tiny cookies, and Belgian waffles.

The Sky Glider State Fair takes visitors on a 25-minute round trip over sequins, and there are subway rides on a giant slide (not the State Fair Giant Hill, but it looked pretty cool, although it didn’t work for a preview overnight). Each is available at an additional cost. Golf cart rides are also available at an additional cost.

Adult tickets are $ 20.75; $ 12.75 for children 5 to 12 years old; Ages 4 and under are free. The $ 75 VIP ticket includes front row parking and access to a heated lobby and bathroom with a full bar. Tickets are non-refundable and must be purchased in advance on GLOWholiday.com. All tickets include a $ 1 donation per ticket sold on a charity partner’s designated night.
