Light-Up! St. Augustine
The season of the Nights of Lights all begins with one of the city’s biggest events, Light-Up! Night which begins with a lighting ceremony in the Plaza de la Constitución. The festivities begin at 4pm with music as crowds gather for the Light-Up! event when the the entire city is illuminated by millions of holiday lights at 6:30pm. The city of St Augustine will be illuminated with dazzling lights from Nov.19th to Jan 31st, 2011.
“When outlined in light, the sweeping Bridge of Lions, the many arched doorways of Spanish Colonial homes, the sturdy towers of the 19th Century hotels together with the huge oaks in the parks and the tall straight palms that line the streets all come together in a seamless display of light.”
The millions of lights will be a stunning backdrop for all the upcoming holiday events in downtown St Augustine. This will be the first year since the Bridge of Lions was renovated that it will be included in the light display.
