Charleston Holiday Festival of Lights 




A holiday favorite, The Charleston Holiday Festival of Lights, returns to James Island County Park in November for its 30th year. Featuring an estimated two million shimmering lights, Charleston’s most popular holiday event opens for nightly admission in November 2019.

The Festival of Lights is known for its three-mile driving tour, but there is much more to see and do. The festival also has an impressive sculpture made from 50 tons of sand, a holiday train, an enchanted walking trail, a Victorian carousel, Santa Clause, Santa’s sweet shop, gift shops, marshmallow roasting, and concessions with hamburgers, kettle corn, hot chocolate and more.
