There’s a new Christmas lights display coming to the Grand Strand this holiday season and they’re calling it the Conway Celebration of Lights! The irony here is that I’m watching National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation right now as I’m writing this even though school just started and the temperature is well above 90 degrees.
Similar to the experience at James Island Festival of Lights in Charleston, the Conway Celebration of Lights is planned to be a one-mile drive-through light display featuring local singers and artists. While the details aren’t finalized yet, admission is expected to be $5 per carload, with higher fees for a van or bus.
The tour will end on Laurel Street, where guests can tour the lovely downtown Conway. If you haven’t been, it’s lined with beautiful shops, filled with everything from home decor to specialty foods. There are also restaurants, perfect for a bite to eat on a holiday evening.
You can read more details in this article from MyHorryNews.com. The show is scheduled to begin Thanksgiving weekend and remain open until the first weekend in January.
Truly, we couldn’t be more excited! We love how twinkly downtown Conway gets during the holiday season. This Celebration of Lights is sure to be nothing short of delightful!
And let me be the first to wish you a very happy holiday season!
