About Us

Imagine a place filled with snowflakes, toys, reindeer and even old St. Nick himself.  

It’s not the North Pole; it’s “The Anderson Christmas Lights”  

Anderson Lights of Hope presents, the 26th annual light show that has been illuminating Anderson, South Carolina during the holidays with its drive thru display of over a million multi-colored lights and Santa Village.

The Anderson Christmas Lights is a family-tradition that has become a regional attraction during the holiday season. Many of our visitors are weekly repeat visitors, and the arrangement of the lights changes every year and we add new displays each year as well. 2018 had 7 new displays and a bigger village.

It is no easy task to illuminate 45 acres, or light over 2.4 miles of roadway but Santa’s small army of dedicated volunteers turn the park into a fantasy of lights every year. This event is for everyone of every age. The park hosted over 51,000 cars of visitors in 2017 and hopes to continue to increase that number each year.

                                       Visit the Event Calendar page for more info.
