Don't miss North Alabama's favorite holiday tradition!

Galaxy of Lights is a holiday light extravaganza featuring larger-than-life animated light displays. See Santa soaring over a delightful winter village. Nursery rhyme characters dance and frolic among traditional scenes of the season. And, best of all, experience the magic of the twinkling icicle forest. Galaxy of Lights is the perfect holiday treat for the young and young-at-heart.

Walking nights are the best way to experience the Galaxy of Lights.

Group Tours welcome. Call 256-830-4447 ext. 223 for group rates
Galaxy of Lights was named a Southeast Tourism Top 20 event for 2009.
