See the Holiday Light Show at Vulcan Park

One of my favorite childhood Christmas memories is driving through a local light display that danced in sync with music that played on a short-range radio station. Imagine my excitement when I found out that Vulcan Park and Museum does the same thing, but on a much larger scale. 

Every day from December 8 through December 23, guests can experience a 15-minute light show choreographed to classic holiday music.

The Holiday Cheer Kicks Off December 8
