This year marks the 23rd and final year for the
Festival of Lights at Blue Spruce Park. The
festival began in 1992 with just a few displays
and lighting in only one area of the park. The
festival has been greatly enlarged and expanded
over the years.
Since 1992 our park system has grown from four
parks to fourteen sites. We have reached the point
where we can no longer devote four months to one
event, while realistically hoping to offer a
quality park system throughout the remainder of
the year with our current budget and staffing
The Festival of Lights at Blue Spruce Park is
an event that to us always meant much more than
just holiday lights. The friendships we
established with our volunteers and visitors these
many years is something we will always remember.
So if you have never been to the festival, or
have not been here for many years this year will
be your last opportunity to see the display.
As you travel the park one last time to view
the lights we hope that you, too, will have
enjoyable memories of your time spent here.
