The Holiday Light Show and Christmas Festival are perfect ways to end the year. Lights are powerful symbols of hope, joy, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, grace, festivity, and the bright beginnings to come. The symbolism of lights is especially relevant in these unprecedented times where messages of hope, peace, and reconciliation are not to be taken for granted and are often buried beneath loss, loneliness, grief, and deep need.
These events are coordinated and hosted by the Baldwin County Commission’s Department of Archives and History with invaluable support from Baldwin County’s Purchasing, Parks, Building Maintenance, and CIS departments. Event sponsors include Baldwin County Legislative Delegation, Baldwin EMC, North Baldwin Utilities, and the City of Bay Minette.
