Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years are not complete without one million lights brightening the holidays at the 10th annual Big, Bright Light Show, Nov. 23, 2015-Jan. 3, 2016.
At 7 p.m. Nov. 23, don’t miss out on the opening ceremony, otherwise known as “Lagniappe” or “a little something extra,” happening on East Fourth and Main streets. The event will feature Channel 7 reporter Dave LewAllen, the Meadowbrook Carolers and a chance to check out what merchants have in store for Lagniappe. The building facades decorated in more than one million lights shine in the night. Colors like red, yellow, orange, blue and green spread across downtown during this opening ceremony and beyond.
Special guests Santa, Mrs. Claus and a few of their reindeer join the fun to take pictures with families at 7:15 p.m. on Nov. 23, so bring your camera. And who could forget the free horse-drawn carriage rides? They run 6-9 p.m. at East Third and Walnut streets.
The holiday fun of this light display starts during Lagniappe, but continues through Jan. 3, 2016. The buildings will be lit every night (5 p.m.-midnight) and most stores remain open Monday through Saturday till 9 p.m.
This annual event has everything needed to bring families closer for the holidays. You have the entire season to do so.
