Celebration in Lights, Newport

Newport (Virginia) hosts an annual Celebration of Lights festival which ties together Thanksgiving , Christmas and New Year.  Unsually the light display is a drive-through experience located in News Park.  The park is transformed through a display of 800,000 individual lights organised over a 2 mile stretch of roadway featuring over 300 individual display pieces, including 70 “animated holiday and fanciful scences”, 43 arches, and three miles of rope lighting.  A 300ft long animated tunnel of lights forms the centrepiece of the 20th anniversary of the festival, which since 1993 has attracted over 2million visitors.  Enjoy civilwarcat’s drive through video below:
