Lights of the South is again illuminating Columbia County as the display opens this week.
Visitors to the annual event are invited to take a hayride or trail walk through the thousands of lighted displays, which are open nightly, including Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, from 6-10 p.m.
Located off Interstate 20 near Grovetown, the display includes hundreds of traditional favorites such as nativity scenes, Noah's Ark, Santa's Castle, a princess castle and carriage, a 20-foot multicolored rainbow and Rudolph guiding Santa through the sky.
In addition to the light display, enjoy treats from Mrs. Claus' kitchen and visit Santa's hut, where youngsters can have their picture taken with Santa and go over their wish list.
Tickets, which can be purchased at the gate, are $7 for adults, $3 for children ages 6-17 and free for children 5 and younger. Parking is free.
To get to Lights of the South, take I-20 westbound to the Appling-Harlem exit - 183 - where you will take a right turn. Turn right onto Nature's Way and travel on it until you reach a stop sign. At the stop sign, turn right onto Louisville Road and pass over the bridge. Lights of the South will be on the right.
