Looking for a great way to celebrate the Christmas season with the family? Visit Vulcan Park and Museum for the Magic of Lights: Vulcan’s Holiday Light Experience, December 12-23 from 5 -9 p.m. At the top of each hour, beginning at 5 p.m., guests will enjoy a 15-minute lively array of dancing lights projected on Vulcan and his pedestal and choreographed to delightful holiday music.
