Celebration of Holiday Lights

  • Date: -  
  • Location: Gypsy Hill Park
  • Introduction: Gypsy Hill Park will again be glowing with beautiful Holiday light displays from November 25 through January 1, 2020.

In 2018, 80+ displays were “growing and glowing” announcing the birth of Jesus. Each year there are more participants bringing to this wonderful Community, colorful Holiday scenes that are all created uniquely by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and churches from Staunton, Waynesboro, Augusta County and surrounding areas. Power is available only in certain areas. Your display must have a ‘2x3’ sign, identifying your family, individual, organization, business or church. As we continue to grow, fewer spaces are available. The committee invites all interested individuals, groups, Churches and businesses to join the 2019-20 event, by placing a display that has and will continue to be enjoyed by over 32,000 vehicles traveling the Park.

New this year is ”Light A Tree”, display honoring First Responders, Firemen, Policemen, Military, and Rescue Squad. The tree must be a pre-lit outdoor tree, with a 50 foot outdoor cord attached and labeled with name, address, phone number.

The display of decorative holiday deer "Field of Deer" is placed inside the fence at the Gypsy Hill Park Pool in honor of someone living, in memory of a loved one, or “just because”. Registration forms can be downloaded online at celebrationoflights.org and click on “Field of Deer Application Form”. There is no fee for displaying deer; however, if you wish to purchase a plaque for the “Honor Board” with your loved one’s name, there is a one time charge of $10/name. Plaque can be reused the following year. Purchasing a plaque is not mandatory. Deer will be placed randomly in the pool area at the discretion of the committee.
