Light the Park is brighter than ever this year

Light the Park is brighter than ever this year as it expands along N. Campbell Station Road, offers a slate of socially-distant activities and provides the community opportunities to participate. Lights will start at the commuter lot next to the Town of Farragut welcome sign on N. Campbell Station Road and continue to Founders Park at Campbell Station, the Farragut Community Center and the Campbell Station Inn Plaza. Lights come on every evening at dusk from Tuesday, Nov. 24, through Sunday, Jan. 3. 

Even more lights means more space for everyone to distance and enjoy the fun. Parking will be available at the Farragut Community Center (239 Jamestowne Blvd.), the Campbell Station Inn Plaza at the corner of Kingston Pike and Campbell Station Road and Founders Park at Campbell Station. Park restrooms will be open nightly till 10 p.m., except on Dec. 25. 

During Light the Park, a slate of socially-distant activities and giveaways will be offered, including storybook trails, caroling, grab-and-go craft kits, snacks, candy canes, etc. A calendar detailing all activities will be available on visitfarragut.org starting Monday, Nov. 9. 

Santa’s mailbox will continue to usher all wishes directly to the North Pole! Starting Nov. 24, letters can be placed in the mailbox at Founders Park for delivery by elves to the North Pole. Include a return address and you may receive a response from Santa! Sunday, Dec. 20, is the last day to send letters for a response from Santa, but the mailbox will stay out through the remainder of the light display. 

There are several opportunities for businesses and organizations to participate in Light the Park this year. If you would like to participate as a caroler or vendor (grab-and-go items only, please), there are a few spaces left from Nov. 24 through Dec. 23. Elves can assist Santa with responses to letters on Tuesdays and Fridays from Dec. 1 through Dec. 18. Contact Special Program and Event Coordinator Brittany Spencer at bspencer@townoffarragut.org or 865-218-3376 to sign up for any of these volunteer opportunities. Please note, caroling groups must be families or small associated groups.

The expansion of Light the Park was funded by federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act money granted to Visit Farragut, in partnership with Visit Knoxville, from the state of Tennessee. A portion of CARES funding is designated for tourism-related spending, including events that could be safely held during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Incorporated in 1980, the Town of Farragut has top schools, safe neighborhoods and high development standards, making it one of the best places to live in the Southeast.
