Officials with Lanier Islands decided to end the drivable Magical Nights of Lights after nearly thirty years, replacing them with a walkable light show. .
The new Lakeside Lights Spectacular will feature a walkable holiday lights tour set to holiday tunes and suitable for ALL ages. The show is in continued partnership with Safe Harbor.
Guests will have the opportunity to stroll through the new display and pick up either hot cocoa or cocktails along the way.
