Candy Cane Lane is brightly shining

Candy Cane Lane, a custom outdoor drive-thru holiday display at the Carson Valley Inn, will be lit-up for nightly viewing starting Thanksgiving weekend.

In its third year, Candy Cane Lane features thousands of seasonal lights and a variety of scenes depicting traditional characters and images getting ready for Christmas.

Accompanying music can be heard by tuning to FM radio to the frequency posted at the entrance.

To experience this visual and musical salute to the festive holiday season, pull into the Carson Valley Inn parking lot at the RV Resort Entrance — between the Carson Valley Market and the inn’s electronic sign. The lighted arches mark the way.

“The popularity of Candy Cane Lane has been truly amazing. It only takes about a minute to drive through, but the smiles and glowing reactions from kids — and adults — is so gratifying. As I talk to people in the community I’m constantly surprised at how many people have not only driven through once, but have come back through again with friends, family or just to see what they missed the first time,” Carson Valley Inn General Manager Steve Chappell said.

Candy Cane Lane adds to the visual holiday celebration done in the Carson Valley each year. The town of Gardnerville presents a light display in Heritage Park and the Town of Minden’s dynamic seasonal illumination of the gazebo in Minden Park are two other holiday presents to the community.

When taken in with some spectacularly lighted residential properties throughout the valley, it all adds up to a visual experience worth the drive to the Carson Valley.

The Carson Valley Inn is located on Highway 395 in Minden, Nev., near the start of Highway 88.

The recently remodeled property includes a casino, sports and race book, 150-room hotel, 74-room motor lodge, 59-site RV park and a convenience store with gas and diesel fuel.

There are also banquet and meeting rooms and services plus three dining facilities: CV Steak, the Inn’s Nevada-style steakhouse featuring steaks, seafood, pasta dishes and more; Katie’s, for 24-hour dining choices and Job’s Perk for coffee drinks, pastries and sundries.
