City of Dickinson Festival of Lights Goes on Despite Harvey Destruction

By  | 


The City of Dickinson, TX proves it’s “Texas Strong” as it rallies forward with its 20th Annual “Festival of Lights.” Amid its devasting destruction caused by Hurricane Harvey, Dickinson didn’t let this stop volunteers from transforming their Paul Hopkins Park into a magical wonderland to celebrate the holiday season.

With free admission, parking and shuttle service to this spectacular display of lights, this year seems more heartwarming as the City celebrates not only the Christmas season but its resilience in bouncing back from such a terrible storm that took its toll hardest on this Texas town.

The “Dickinson Festival of Lights” which started on November 25th and goes until December 23rd is a welcome sight to a town rebuilding after one of the worst storms to hit the area with its flooding waters. Many residents are still in the process of repairing flood-damaged homes.

The festival is open nightly from now until December 10th 6-8:30 p.m. and from December 15-23rd same time. You can expect the same wonderful concession stands to greet you, along with photos with Santa, and dozens of twinkling lights and displays to warm your heart.
