The city of Atlanta may be quite unpredictable when it comes to the anticipation and expectation of a winter wonderland courtesy of blankets of white snow, but the city has found ways to create the scene of winter’s presence just in case the temperatures feel like spring instead of winter…it’s entirely possible. Right in the heart of Downtown Atlanta, Centennial Park is once again hosting its Holiday in Lights light show spectacular, set to brightly light the sky and get residents ready for the short, but festive, holiday season.

            Centennial Olympic Park’s annual Holiday in Lights is an Atlanta tradition. In November, the Park transforms into a winter wonderland with thousands of lights that make up the sparkling display. Different and unique every year, Holiday in Lights runs through the first week of January. The Park is open daily to view the lights from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., including Dec. 25, Christmas Day, and there is no charge for admission.

            Come celebrate the 2012 holiday season by taking a stroll through the glowing 21-acre Park or a spin around Atlanta’s outdoor ice skating rink located amongst the glittering lights on the Great Lawn. After you experience the Park, enjoy holiday specials at restaurants and other attractions in the Luckie Marietta District. The Holiday in Lights spirit is carried throughout the Georgia World Congress Center Authority campus, which includes the Georgia World Congress Center, the Georgia Dome and Centennial Olympic Park.
