Festival of Lights | Light Up Lake Jackson

The Holidays Start in Lake Jackson! 

Lake Jackson brings the festivities with its Festival of Lights November 19-20 with the World's Largest Snowman Bounce House and the 31st Annual Parade of Lights

We've kept the community favorites and added some spectacular new traditions too! 

Enjoy the weekend but don't forget to enjoy the season too! Light Up Lake Jackson keeps the holiday season going with the After-Parade Movie Night. Watch The Grinch then enjoy the weeks ahead as Light Up Lake Jackson events blanket the community. 

The program that stepped in when COVID shuttered Festival of Lights in 2020 comes back as a new tradition to keep the spirit of the holidays ringing throughout our community, Brazoria County and beyond! 

Happy Holidays Lake Jackson!
