There are still a few days left to drive through Grayson County’s brightest holiday attraction. Grayson County Holiday Lights at Loy Park continues through New Year’s Eve.
The display is open nightly from 5:30-10 p.m. through Dec. 31.
Purchasing Agent Jodi Platt, whose other title this time of the year is Elf Services Supervisor, said things are looking good for the 19th year of the display to finish off strong. This year has not seen any bad weather closures and that has allowed lots more people to be able to drive through and experience the display.
To get to the display, exit Crawford Street off of U.S. Highway 75 and take the south access road to the lighted entrance. While there is no charge for the display.
Donations are accepted at the end of the drive, and those donations are used to keep the lights on and to replace displays as the need arises.
Retired Grayson County Judge Horace Groff and the late Commissioner Butch McCraw started drive through with help from the Clara Blackford Smith and W. Aubrey Smith Foundations and from the Oliver Dewey Mayor Foundation. Ongoing donations from those foundations and many local businesses have helped to pay for upgrades and changes at the display over the years.
