Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights
Savannah's only spectacular light show
From November 23 until January 1, Hutchinson Island will play host to an extraordinary community holiday event, The Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights. The children’s charity non-profit, Savannah Harbor Foundation, is working in conjunction with various charities and organizations in the Greater Savannah Area to orchestrate an experiential, interactive holiday experience for the entire family.
The focus of the event is a drive-through of over 60 larger-than-life lighted displays staged around the Road Course on the island—everything from moving pirate ships to enormous nutcrackers and oversized teddy bears. After the drive, families can park at the center of the Road Course in the pit and paddock, and enjoy a wide range of ever-changing activities and delight in festive treats like s’mores and hot chocolate around a bonfire. With an exotic animal exhibition by Staples Safari Zoo, and a live nativity scene, every night is different and every visit uniquely thrilling. Plus, additional programming and events is scheduled every weekend! Bring your family and friends to experience all the delightful sight and sounds of the holidays again and again!
