Festival of Lights

HOLIDAYS IN LAKE JACKSON

Lake Jackson becomes the first event of the holiday season with its Festival of Lights November 17-20 featuring the 32nd Annual Parade of Lights!

Enjoy the weekend but don't forget to enjoy the season too! Light Up Lake Jackson keeps the holiday season going with the After-Parade Movie Night.  The program that stepped in when COVID shuttered Festival of Lights in 2020 comes back as a new tradition to keep the spirit of the holidays ringing throughout our community, Brazoria County and beyond! 

November 17 - November 20, 2022
