 CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL
OF LIGHTS

Our eighth annual Christmas Festival of Lights will kick off with the Lighting Ceremony, which will be held on Saturday, November 28, at 5:00 p.m. at the amphitheater at Afton and Pauline Malick Central Hampshire Park in Augusta. The Festival will run through January 1 and will be open daily from 5:30 until 10:00 p.m.

We will serve coffee, hot chocolate, and cookies free of charge to all who attend the Lighting Ceremony, and Santa will be there to greet the kids of all ages. And you kids need to remember to bring an ornament to help decorate the official Christmas Festival of Lights Christmas Tree.

Through the generosity of the Hampshire County Commission, the HCP&R Board, and many businesses and individuals throughout the area, the Festival has exploded over the past seven years. We have grown from 24 light displays in 2013 to 225 displays this year. New features for 2020 include a four-foot extension to our giant Christmas tree in the field above the amphitheater, making it a 22-foot tree this year, and several large displays to ring the interior of the park.

Also, don't forget about our great musical display. When you enter the park, simply tune your car or truck radio to a specific frequency and then watch our musical display flash to the beat of some of your favorite Christmas tunes, which will be playing through your radio. And the best part is that you can enjoy the lights from the warmth and comfort of your own vehicle free of charge. Mark your calendars right now so you don’t miss this special Christmas tradition.

 CHRISTMAS FESTIVAL
OF LIGHTS

The Christmas Festival of Lights Fund Drive is over for 2020, and thanks to the generosity of our community, we were able to order several new additions to the displays. Factoring in the $5,000 contribution from the HCP&R Board, we raised a total of $11,300 from 19 different donors in this year’s Drive.

We have already ordered the four-foot section for our giant Christmas tree, the parts and replacements for the displays that need attention, and a huge new Toy Factory display for the middle of the park. Our next purchase will be another big display that will help light up the area above the amphitheater.

If you wanted to contribute but forgot to do it, we are still accepting donations. Contributions of any size are appreciated. If you just want to send in $5 or $10, every donation helps make the Festival that much better in 2020. And we’ll list every contributor, no matter how big or how small the donation, on our website, hampshirecountyparks.com

Contributions may be mailed to HCP&R, P.O. Box 213, Romney, WV 26757, or delivered to the HCP&R Office at 90 North High Street any weekday between 9:00 and 1:00. If you’d like us to pick up your contribution, give us a call at (304) 822-7300, or email us at hampshirecoparks@hotmail.com, and we’ll make the necessary arrangements to come and get your donation at your home or place of business. Thank you for your support of this project!
