Last week for Festival of Lights at Lake Julian

From Buncombe County:


Light up your holidays at the 16th annual Lake Julian Festival of Lights.
Pile the family in the car, come on out, and light up your night at the Lake Julian Park Festival of Lights – drive thru. The drive continues nightly from 6 – 9 p.m. through December 23.

During the Festival of Lights, Lake Julian Park is brightly lit with thousands of colored lights and over 50 animated and stationary light displays. The road circling the park becomes a magical journey through tunnels of dazzling lights. Buncombe County Special Olympics will receive 20% of ticket sales throughout the Lake Julian Festival of Lights.

Lake Julian Festival of Lights Information: The cost for this drive through presentation is $5 for a car, $10 for a van and $25 for a motor coach. 20% of the proceeds will be donated to Buncombe County Special Olympics. Lake Julian Park is located off Long Shoals Road.
