What started as a small display with a few lights has grown into one of the best holiday light displays in the country. Visitors will wind through the roads at beautiful James Island County Park through themed sections of brillant lights in over 750 displays. Guests will enjoy displays of typical Christmas scenes as well as displays that are very unique to the Charleston landscape.
When folks are done driving through the displays, they should pick a place to park and enjoy the exhibits within the park. Guests can enjoy a traditional carousel, rock climbing wall, gingerbread house displays, giant sand sculpture, Christmas shop, food vendors, and fire pit (marshmallow roasting is a favorite pastime at the festival). Crowds will be lighter in November and steadily grow as Christmas approaches. This is one event you don't want to miss!
Money saving tips: Guests will receive $5 off Admission Mondays-Thursdays when they bring a canned food donation for the Lowcountry Food Bank. While marshmallows can be purchased at the festival, guests are also welcome to bring their own marshmallow roasting smores supplies in with them.
