Town of Farragut turns on holiday lights for the season

The public is invited to enjoy the lights each evening, starting Tuesday, Nov. 24 through Jan. 3.

FARRAGUT, Tenn. — The town of Farragut turned on its holiday lights at Founder's Park on Monday. 

Farragut is not hosting an official "Countdown to Light the Park" this year because of COVID-19.

But the public is invited to enjoy the lights each evening, starting Tuesday, Nov. 24 through Jan. 3.

The town will also have lights and events at the Farragut Community Center and the Campbell Station Inn Plaza.

“We have had to adjust our 'Light the Park', our six-week annual event. Instead of having one big countdown, night we have extended our event over six weeks. We have a 30-day calendar of nightly events where families can come out and enjoy our lights every night," tourism coordinator Karen Tindal said.

At the park, socially-distanced activities will be offered including grab-and-go items and story trails.

Local businesses will also offer giveaways on select nights.

Also at Founder's Park, kids can drop off their letters to Santa!
