It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Stores are packed, emails are full of gift ideas and there is a chill in the air. A favorite Christmas tradition for many is driving around to see spectacular light displays. Here are a few of the best in the CSRA:
Christmas in Columbia County
Visit the Evans Towne Center Park anytime until December 31 to walk through an amazing display. A giant tree of lights is in the center of the park with the sidewalks lined with beloved classic stories made of lights. You’ll find a wood Charlie Brown display near the playground area and smaller displays nearby. It is a favorite place to visit for adults and children alike. The lights appear at dusk each evening.
