There’s something new this year for the holidays in Savannah!  Provided by Old Town Trolley Tours of Savannah, The Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights will surely become a beloved family holiday tradition for years to come.

The Road Course at Savannah Harbor on Hutchinson Island has been transformed into a twinkling wonderland, and is now home to over 60 larger-than-life lighted, holiday-themed displays. This one-of-a-kind, experiential, interactive holiday lights event will delight people of all ages and is sure to attract out of town visitors to marvel at such festivity!

These large-scale light displays will be staged around the near 2-mile track where cars, trolleys and horse-drawn carriages can drive through at a leisurely pace and marvel at all the intricacies of these lighted masterpieces, like animated pirate ships, holiday scenes, dinosaurs and a drive-through tunnel of lights.

You can either drive through yourself or leave the driving to the tour guides and simply enjoy panoramic, high profile views of the entire festival area, while listening to holiday music and cruising past the over 60 displays.  You will also have the opportunity to disembark at the festival area and partake in a variety of festive family-friendly activities, snack on tasty treats, warm up by the bonfire with hot chocolate and a s’more and enjoy all the sights and sounds of the holidays!

The Savannah Harbor Festival of Lights will be open Wednesdays through Sundays, including Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, from 6-10 p.m.  Visit the website for more information and to purchase your tickets.

This event is supported by the Savannah Harbor Foundation, a 501(3)c non-profit charitable organization founded in 2001 after 9/11. The heart of this organization lies in the dedication and support of local children’s charities and the presentation of family-friendly events.  “Proceeds from the Festival of Lights will go directly back into the hands of the charities we have partnered with for this particular event,” said Mark Spadoni, President of Savannah Harbor Foundation and General Manager of The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa.
