If you’ve never been to Bell Park in Greenwood at Christmas time, you simply must go! It’s a beautiful drive-thru display of lights, reminiscent of a Hallmark movie.
Every year, following the Thanksgiving holiday, members of Focus on Greenwood work tirelessly to create the display. And, every year, they have added a new feature for loyal patrons to enjoy. The light tunnel, the newest addition, has been popular for visitors and photographers.
There are still several more days to enjoy the display before it closes on December 26. Friday, December 20, is movie night. “The Grinch” will be featured from 6-7:30 p.m. Then, on Saturday, December 21, there will be a hayride, cocoa and live music from 6-7 p.m.
Proceeds from the Trail of Lights benefit Greenwood families in need through the charitable organization, Focus on Greenwood.
Other seasonal activities for the family include visiting the Santa House on the square. The event is limited to the first 20 children each night. The Santa House will be open on Tuesday, December 17, Thursday, December 19 and Friday, December 20. Storytime begins at 5:30 p.m., and children can visit with Santa from 6-7:30 p.m. To receive a free pass to the Santa house, contact Stephanie Griffith at 479-597-0170 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
