[JAMES ISLAND] – One of the area’s most beloved family fun runs has been expanded to two nights! The popular Holiday Festival of Lights Fun Run and Walk will be offered on Wednesday, Nov. 7 AND Thursday, Nov. 8. Join this two-mile non-competitive fun run and walk for a special sneak peek of the 23rd annual Holiday Festival of Lights at James Island County Park.
Runners and walkers will be the first in Charleston to view more than 600 magical light displays. After reaching the finish line, participants are invited to enjoy the festival's amenities. Admission ticket (not receipt) is required for event entry, and must be purchased in advance.
