St. Augustine Nights of Lights
January 30 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 6:00 pm, repeating until 01/31/2020
Nights of Lights has been listed among the top ten holiday light displays in the world by National Geographic. During Nights of Lights, St. Augustine glows with holiday magic – from the ground to the rooftops. St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights features millions of tiny white lights that create a magical atmosphere in the Nation’s Oldest City, and it’s free of charge.
When is Nights of Lights?
Nights of Lights traditionally begins the Saturday before Thanksgiving and continues nightly through January 31st. The 2019-2020 Nights of Lights will take place from November 23, 2019 to January 31, 2020. Light-Up! Night! kicks off the display on November 23.
Where can you see the lights?
White lights drape the city’s unique Spanish Colonial architecture and glow from the sidewalks to the rooftops, over the Bridge of Lions, along historic buildings, public spaces, hotels, restaurants, and inns throughout approximately 20 blocks of the Nation’s Oldest City’s historic district.
The top two spots to visit for the best views and Nights of Lights selfies are:
1. The Plaza de la Constitución
Get the perfect holiday selfie in front of the Christmas tree in the center of the plaza. There are also live music performances in the plaza on weekends and throughout the holidays.
2. The Bridge of Lions
Walk the bridge to gaze back at the sparkling reflection of the lights along the water.
