Nights of Lights Grand Illumination

Selected by National Geographic in 2011 & 2012 as one of the ten best holiday lighting displays in the world, St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights feature 3 million of tiny antique white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s oldest city.
Tracing its origins to the Spanish tradition of displaying a white candle in the window during the Christmas holidays, the spectacular lighting reflects the city’s 448-year history and illuminates the beautiful setting for lasting holiday memories. The 26th Annual Nights of Lights celebration sparkles to life at 6:30 p.m. in St. Augustine’s Plaza de la Constitucion.
