FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS
-State park holiday celebration features more than five million lights-
Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park will host the 20th annual Festival of Lights, displaying more than five million lights throughout the park, December 5-31, 2014. The park will be open each evening until 9 p.m., except Christmas Night, December 25 we will be closed. On Christmas Eve, December 24 we will be a drive through only.
Named a Top 20 Event in the southeastern United States, visitors can enjoy award-winning holiday sights and sounds throughout the park. Unique holiday light displays include majestic oak trees decorated with thousands of lights, an antebellum Museum dressed in full holiday splendor, a gingerbread village, a candy cane forest, Santa’s runway and much more. The park’s centerpiece is the 200 foot tall Carillon Tower, which illuminates the night sky as holiday music rings from its bells.
Cousin Thelma Boltin’s Gift Shop will be open everyday from noon until 9:00 p.m. Complimentary hot cocoa and popcorn are served nightly as the Craft Square comes alive with craft demonstrations, a bonfire, marshmallow roasting and holiday singing for everyone.
Visitors can experience a “flurry” of fun in our winter wonderland which includes Santa! Weather reports predict a chance of snow flurries every evening on the hour and giant snow families have been spotted in the area!
The entrance fee for this event is $3.00 per person. The Festival of Lights is sponsored by the Stephen Foster Citizens Support Organization, and made possible by the generous support of numerous local individuals and businesses.
Fees: $3.00 per person.
