The ending of Festival of Lights is just the beginning 

Light Up Lake Jackson!

A Season of Yuletide Cheer! 

The new Lake Jackson holiday tradition!

Light Up Lake Jackson was designed during COVID as a way to have a safe and fun holiday celebration for residents and visitors. It became an annual event after the magnificent response from residents who were delighted with the month-long festivities. 

The 3rd Annual Light Up Lake Jackson occurs on our FB page and our website. This includes rules, procedures, downloads and entry forms. We also announce the winners. Winners will receive their prizes and awards in person at City Hall. 

It begins as the last event of the Festival of Lights and runs until New Year's Eve. 

The events and contests are free to all. 

We are still planning Light Up Lake Jackson 2023 activities. Check back regularly to see when we've finalized the plans!
