(JAMES ISLAND) – James Island County Park’s Holiday Festival of Lights opened its gates on Nov. 11, featuring over 700 bright, beautiful light displays of all shapes and sizes. What’s every family’s best bet to get the most out of the festival? Come Monday through Thursday, and bring a canned food item!

For years, the Holiday Festival of Lights has collected canned food items at the festival gate for donation to the Lowcountry Food Bank. Canned dog or cat food items are also being accepted for donation. On every Monday through Thursday through Dec. 29, festival-goers who bring a non-perishable, canned food item for donation will save $5 off their vehicle admission fee (of up to 15 passengers). Not to mention, weeknights at the festival traditionally experience less traffic, so you’ll save on time as well.

Not only will donating save visitors money, but it will also help support those in need this holiday season. At last year’s festival, 15,893 pounds of food were donated. This equated to an estimated 13,245 meals provided to those in need during the holidays.

The 27th Annual Holiday Festival of Lights kicks off Nov. 11 and will be open nightly through Jan. 1 at James Island County Park. The event is presented by Boeing and your Charleston County Parks.
