Can you believe that we’ve been celebrating this amazing event for more than three decades? That means since 1990! And soon on Dec. 4, we’ll officially ring in the 31st Annual Celebration of Lights in Downtown Albany. Keep reading to learn more about this year’s event.
About the 31st Annual Celebration of Lights in Downtown Albany
Each year, the City of Albany GA throws an Annual Celebration of Lights downtown. It includes the creation of a Christmas Village, as well as a special holiday theme.
When you visit in a few weeks, you’ll step right into “A Candyland Christmas.” How sweet—literally!
Fun fact: Campers from the 2021 City of Albany Recreation & Parks Summer Youth Camp picked out that theme.
What can I do at the event?
You’ll find much merriment to make at the 31st Annual Celebration of Lights in Downtown Albany. It will include:
- Holiday shopping options from vendors;
- A pre-show;
- Downtown shopping opportunities from local businesses;
- Live entertainment;
- A big parade finale; and
- An appearance from Santa Claus during the parade.
You still have some time to plan ahead. We’ll give you all the details too to make it even easier.
The Celebration of Lights is free for all to attend. It will kick off at 4 p.m. in Downtown Albany. That’s when you can start buying from holiday vendors as well.
Make sure to get your gift buying done before 6 p.m. After all, that’s when the big parade kicks off—and you don’t want to miss it!
