BECKWITH, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Many of us have just wrapped up Thanksgiving, but Christmas festivities are already underway or will start very soon.
One local park will soon power on its 150,000 Christmas lights for people to enjoy. Starting on Thursday, December 1st, the Fayette County Park in Beckwith will be shining brightly each evening through December, except for Christmas Day and Dec. 31, as they host their annual “Lacy’s Lights” display.
Admission to the light display is $5 per vehicle, and you may ride or walk through as many times as you would like. The display will be open from 6–10 PM each evening. The Canteen will also be open selling snacks and drinks.
Wagon rides and build-an-animal will be available at the park each weekend up until the 23rd from 6-9 PM.
The lights were first started in 1967 by Lacy Smith in Pax, WV. When Mr. Smith died, his wife Lurabell continued adding to and displaying the lights until she passed in the early part of 1998 at which time the Fayette County Park received the lights from the daughters of Lacy and Lurabell.
