About Us

Imagine a place filled with snowflakes, toys, reindeer, gingerbread men and even old St. Nick himself.  It’s not the North Pole;  It’s The Anderson Christmas Lights in Anderson, South Carolina.


Anderson Lights of Hope is proud to present in 2021              the 28th annual light show that has been illuminating the Upstate during the holidays with its 2.5 mile long drive through displays.  Over 3.5 million lights cover 200+ displays, trees, bushes, buildings and line the roadway.  This family tradition has become a true holiday event for many families. Many visitors repeat visits weekly.  Each year we add new displays and move them around the park to make it different.

It is no easy task to make the 45 acre site turn into a winter wonderland. Hundreds of volunteers work more than 1,400 hours to bring the twinkle not only to Santa’s eyes but those of the visitors.
