Come to Village Park and enjoy all the beautiful lights and displays in celebration of the holidays. Visit Santa, create a craft, enjoy smore’s around the fire pit and more!

The Celebration of Lights includes thousands and thousands of Christmas lights and holiday displays. Again, this year, kids of all ages will be able to visit Santa. The park will also feature performances from the Kannapolis Singing Bears who will entertain you with a Christmas Carol performance. On various nights local community groups and musicians will perform your favorite Christmas songs. Children will also have an opportunity to create ornaments and engage in the children’s zone.

The event kicks off with the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on November 20 and runs through December 30 (closed Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day), and is open from 6-9 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6-10 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Plus, don’t miss the special nighttime Kannapolis Christmas Parade on December 11!
