Blue Jacket’s Fantasy of Lights

Fantasy of Lights is one of northeast Indiana’s favorite winter holiday events. This drive-thru event is held at Franke Park in Fort Wayne, Ind. and transforms the local park into a spectacular winter wonderland. With over 110 larger-than-life displays and 270,000 LED lights, as well as an interactive experience in the Pond Pavilion, the experience is better than ever! It is also the leading fundraiser for Blue Jacket.  The event generally runs from the Tuesday before Thanksgiving through Dec. 31.

We put our money where our mouth is!

Starting in 2018, Blue Jacket transitionally hired 18 clients to help setup, teardown, and manage the nightly operations.  100% became full time employed in community jobs as a result of the opportunity Fantasy of Lights gave them.

Not only does this event fund our Career Academy training and case management, but actual employment!
