HolidaysHolidays in Lake Jackson!

Lake Jackson is the first to bring the Yuletide cheer with its Festival of Lights November 16-19, featuring the 33rd 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 after the Festival of Lights brings Santa to town! 

The Yuletide program that stepped in when COVID shuttered Festival of Lights in 2020 comes back as a best tradition to keep the spirit of the holidays ringing throughout our community, Brazoria County and beyond!
