The seventh annual Community Holiday Light Show kicks off tonight, with shows each night at Ballou Park through Christmas Day, except for Christmas Eve. The show begins at 6 p.m. and closes at 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.
Last year, 8,956 people visited the park for the light show, which is a drive-through event featuring light displays created by local individuals, families, businesses and organizations. The Southeast Tourism Society has designated the light show as a Top 20 Event in the region for two consecutive years.
A portion of the proceeds is donated to local organizations, volunteer groups, and non-profits. Last year, a record $12,935 was donated, and since its inception, the light show has contributed almost $50,000.
Enter the park at its Park Avenue entrance. Volunteer groups will be there to direct traffic through the park. The cost is $10 per car and $20 for buses and 15-passenger vans. Dec. 9, 14, and 15 are discount nights, with admission $7 for cars and $15 for 15-passenger vans and buses.
This is a cash-only event.
