About The Show
For the remainder of 2021, we will present a walk-through show in MLK Plaza in downtown State College.
Our downtown show is done in conjunction with the Downtown Improvement District, with the hope that visitors who come to see the light show will also spend some time downtown discovering all the wonderful businesses and opportunities downtown has to offer.
Small local businesses have been hit very hard during these last two years, and as small business owners ourselves, we encourage you to support small local businesses this holiday season.
Show times are every day from 5:00 -10:00 PM
The Christmas show runs until December 30, then on December 31 the show changes to a brand new New Years Eve show.
The show runs through New Years' Day and lasts under 10 minutes.
