[ARCHIVED] Sixth annual Holiday Light Show underway

Community holiday light show logo

The sixth annual Community Holiday Light Show is underway, with shows each night at Ballou Park through Christmas Day, except for Christmas Eve. The show begins at 6 p.m. and closes at 9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Last year, an estimated 10,500 people visited the park for the light show, which is a drive-through event featuring light displays and painted 4-foot-by-eight-foot greeting cards created by local individuals, families, businesses, and organizations.

Enter the park at its Park Avenue entrance. Volunteer groups will be there to direct traffic through the park. The cost is $10 per car and $20 for buses and 15-passenger vans. This is a cash-only event.

New this year is the Fast Pass option. The Fast Pass will allow you to enter the Light Show without waiting in the entrance line to the show for one night of your choice. These passes are on sale at the Danville Welcome Center for $20.

The event also includes the Children's Village, which is included in the price of admission and will be open until 9 p.m. through Dec. 23. Holiday crafts, hot chocolate and free photos with Santa Claus are part of the village.

During the event, the public will be given the opportunity to vote on their favorite display. A donation will be made to the winner’s choice of a non-profit organization.

A portion of the proceeds also will be donated to the working volunteer groups.  

For more information, call the Danville Welcome Center at 793-4636 or visit
