Christmas Light Park
I mentioned a festive week. How about a Festival of Lights?
With family in town and the great outdoors begging us to get outside for some Christmas cheer, last night we decided to take the kids to our James Island County Park ‘Festival of Lights‘ show.
This is our local version of the drive through light show. It is something the kids look forward to every year. For some reason they were looking forward to toasting marshmallows more than ever before.
You know what? I think this Christmas light park is really for kids….
We found a gingerbread house we could get in….
We even found a dolphin among the land-locked light show…
We found some wonderfully lit trees…
…just in case you have not heard Mannheim Steamroller enough this month.
the display really caught your attention as you walked on by.
Our trail took us to a fifty ton pile of sand that was cleverly sculpted into…
..Santa’s Castle. The kids seemed to enjoy the glorified sand castle a little…
As the path led back towards the start we came upon a giant Christmas Card display or contest from area school students. I have to admit….they are better than me at this….
and a take off on our area’s Shrimp and Grits….
and another that offers ‘Season’s Greetings from our shores to yours’…
All in all it was a nice night out. The walking path light show is one we have not done before so that made the whole night a bit more interesting this time too.
And MOST importantly, the kids seemed to really like the lights too, despite our repeated “No’s” to “Carry me, Carry me!“
….its a Griswold Christmas!
Happy Holidays Everyone!
