Lights Of The Ozarks Kicks Off With Lighting Ceremony

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- More than half a million lights fill the Fayetteville Square every winter for The Lights of the Ozarks light display, which will return on Friday (Nov. 18).

At 6 p.m. Mayor Lioneld Jordan will flip the switch that turns the Square into a winter wonderland.

The holiday parade kicks off after that and will go around the Square and Down Dickson Street. Vendors will be set up to offer pony rides, kettle corn, hot cocoa and much more.

Naughty or nice, Santa Claus and his reindeer will be on the square every evening from 6-9 p.m. until Dec. 23. Santa will see anyone for free, but there is a $5 fee for pictures and it's $2 to see his reindeer.

The lights will be on from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m every day until Dec. 31.
