Jolly Holiday Lights

Making Iowa Wishes Come True

Make-A-Wish® Iowa started Jolly Holiday Lights over 25 years ago to raise money to grant Iowa children’s wishes. Since then, Jolly Holiday Lights has become the organization’s largest fundraising event, funding more than 1,000 wishes to date. Make-A-Wish Iowa is excited about this year's new adventure at the Outlets of Des Moines, where families can carry on this holiday tradition.
