Ring in the holiday season with our 20th annual music and lights celebration at Bowring Park Duck Pond.

From December 3 to January 6, visit Bowring Park Duck Pond to view the beautiful light display that will put you in the holiday spirit! Due to COVID-19 precautions, the festival will be a little different this year with no public event to switch on the lights.

To enhance your experience, a holiday audio show featuring festive songs from local musicians will be available for you to enjoy while viewing the lights. Signage in the park will provide instructions for accessing the audio show using a smartphone camera and QR code, a URL address through a web browser or an FM station on a FM radio.

Please respect COVID-19 public health guidelines while enjoying the music and lights. Vaccine passports are not required to attend this outdoor festival.
