Headed out to catch one last glimpse of Millis Wonderland in its final year? Yikes! Be prepared for a very long line of cars waiting to reach the property. We went last night on a school night, left Foxboro at 7pm after dance and did not get home until after 10pm. We waited 90 minutes before getting up to the gates of the Meehan family’s home. And we thought we’d bring you a little video as we waited and waited and waited and waited…
In the end, Owen (age four) fell asleep as soon as we got close enough to see some twinkling lights. I tried my darnedest to wake him up, but he wouldn’t have it.
- Stop and Dunkins before lining up (there’s one super close on 109 before you get into the neighborhood and there’s also one on 115)
- Pack snacks, maybe even dinner
- Have movies in the car, or something for the kids to do while you wait. Games, phones, gadgets all charged up).
- Wear your jammies (it’ll be late when you get home.)
- Maybe don’t even go and just look at videos and pictures online. (I’m such a Scrooge!)
- Have some cash on hand to donate to Salvation Army (they’re taking up a collection)
- Gas up before you go – you wouldn’t want to run out of gas in that traffic mess!
- Lights are on from 6pm – 10pm. Get there early to avoid the crazy. Although I believe it’s hard to be able to see this place in a reasonable fashion considering it’s their last year and so close to Christmas.
- Runs through Christmas Day.
