High Country Lights is an animated light show featuring over one hundred thousand Christmas lights choreographed to your favorite sounds of the season on a low-power radio transmitter - 95.9FM.  It's hosted by Galax Visitor's Center and Galax Parks and Recreation Department in Felts Park.  The show can be seen nightly starting at 6:00 p.m, November 25, 2021 - January 2, 2022.  It ends at 10:00 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11:00 p.m. Friday & Saturday.  Admission is free.  Make sure to check out our viewing tips before arriving to enhance your experience.


We are a family-friendly Christmas display centered around seasonal fun, excitement, and tradition for children of all ages.  During the busy time of the year, it's one way of bringing loved ones together to celebrate the spirit of Christmas.  Without a doubt, it's the most wonderful time of the year.



We "Highly" recommend everyone to stay in their vehicles.  If you decide to exit your vehicle, social distance is a requirement.  Make sure you distance yourself at least six to ten feet apart.  Wear a mask if you're in close proximity to parties other than yours or waiting in line for pictures.   If you're taking pictures in our photo-op locations (color tunnel or polar bear with tree)... do so quickly as possible then exit to allow others the same opportunity.  By following these simple rules... we'll all have a Happy and Healthy Christmas and keep the lights on.


Note: In the event of Inclement weather, the display will be turned off as a safety precaution.  We apologize for any inconvenience and ask to check here, Facebook or calling 336.756.7529 before visiting.  We strive to post any cancellations by 3:00pm.
