The temperatures are rising, the rides are ready to go, and the pools have been filled with water.

And that can only mean one thing. Holiday World’s Opening Weekend is almost here.

    With my daughter graduating, it would be nice to have one more family trip before she leaves the nest.

    I’ve never been hut have always wanted to visit. Christmas is my all time favorite holiday! I just want to feel like Chevy Chase in the first vacation movie! ?

    I am a grandmother of six grandkids… I have kind of lost touch with my three older granddaughters and would love a chance to reconnect with them on a mini vacation like this! Three girls ages 16,15 and 14! Please consider me!
