The 25th annual edition of St. Augustine’s famed Nights of Lights will sparkle to life at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, November 17 when the flick of a switch will illuminate the oldest city’s historic district with the gentle glow of more than three million tiny, white lights. Selected by National Geo as one of the 10 best holiday lights displays in the world, Nights of Lights provides a luminous setting for an exciting agenda of holiday events and fun through February 3.
During the nearly 250 years when St. Augustine served as the capital of Spanish La Florida, the residents marked the holiday season with a single white candle burning in a window at each home. Today, the Nights of Lights continues that happy tradition in a grand style that reflects the city’s 452 years of history. In addition to the enjoyment that comes from strolling the ancient streets lit by the glowing lights or enjoying the nightly reflection of lights on the waters of Matanzas Bay both visitors and residents can enjoy a wide range of memorable events.
