CLEMMONS, N.C. — Tanglewood Park in Clemmons is preparing for its 21st annual Festival of Lights and this year the park is added new displays, LED lighting, live performances and enlarged the gift village.

The four mile light show offers nearly 90 different displays with more than one million lights.

Tanglewood Park’s Jazmine Kilpatrick said more than 280,000 people attend the show every year. Kilpatrick says the park tries to continually make the show different and better.

“Every year we try to make sure there’s something new, something that even people that come every year there is something to capture their attention,” Kilpatrick said.

This year there are theme nights, weekly discounts and a brand new 110 foot dancing Christmas Tree.

“The University of North Carolina School of The Arts school of music technology students provided original musical compositions for our music for the dancing Christmas tree display,” Kilpatrick said.

The light show opens Friday, Nov. 16 and will be open every day through January 1.
