It’s time to start planning for some Holiday fun! On Monday, November 23, 2015, Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton, VA will glow with holiday lights. This is the eleventh year of this spectacular attraction in the 214 acre park. The displays will light up the night each evening from 5:00 – 11:00. The drive-through display is FREE and open to everyone.
There will be more than 50 unique, brightly colored Holiday scenes designed and built by local individuals, families, organizations, businesses, and church groups. The displays will be enjoyed by 30,000 people during the month-long tradition.
There is a very special area of the Celebration of Holiday Lights. The “Field of Deer” is located inside the fence at the Gypsy Hill Park Pool. Each lighted deer is placed and lit in honor of someone living or in memory of a loved one. The field of deer has become a large “herd” of the lighted memorials and tributes and according to one TripAdvisor review is “especially touching”.
On Friday, December 18 at 6:00 pm, watch the Live Nativity produced by a local church. On Saturday, December 19, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM, come to the Bandstand to share in Christmas Caroling and to support the Valley Mission. There will be performances by the Harrisonburg Harmonizers and other local choirs. The bonfire will warm you from the outside while your heart warms with the sounds of the season and the free hot chocolate warms you on the inside. Kids can also have their picture taken with Santa! Bring some paper products or canned goods to support the mission too.
What a great way to enjoy the Holiday season – with events to help others and to warm your heart!
