From watching White Christmas to eating grandma’s cookies to spraying fake snow on the windows, we all have our seasonal rituals. And it’s impossible to live here and get in the spirit without a spin through the Holiday Festival of Lights. Now in its 24th year, James Island County Park’s two-million light display depicts everything from Santa’s reindeer to dinosaurs and flamingos. “Some of our popular displays include the Ravenel Bridge, which is 30-feet high and over a football field wide, to our 10,000 light oak tree,” says Charleston County Park and Rec’s Sarah Reynolds. Stop along the route to visit Santa at his workshop, pick up some hot chocolate and treats, ride the merry-go-round, or take the festival express train through the walking path. You can also see one of the new displays, from last year’s Light Display contest winner, a 7-year-old West Ashley girl came up with penguins playing on an iceberg. Kids 12 and under can submit their entries for next year’s contest online or at the park to win their own chance at Festival of Lights fame.
