Come Celebrate 20 Years of Twinkle, Memories & Tradition

Lake Lanier Islands Resort is excited to announce its 20th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights!

You're invited to join in celebrating 20 years of twinkle that will create new memories and add to the famous traditions under the lights! Pack your car full of family, friends and neighbors and head out to the lake for a night to remember!

Drive over the magnificent snowflake bridge, down through the 12 days of Christmas, up past the illuminated diamond wonder light, under the blanket-lit bridge, all the way to the dancing Holiday House, Christmas Carnival and more! Starting Friday, November 16th until Monday, December 31st, come celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Magical Nights of Lights featuring miles of illuminated characters and millions of twinkling lights!

Your Magical Nights of Lights journey doesn't stop with the lights. The Holiday Village is a must-see for everyone, complete with a bonfire for roasting marshmallows, delicious holiday fare, pony and amusement rides, holiday shopping and much more. Look for that perfect Christmas tree ornament to commemorate your annual visit.

And, what holiday spectacle would be complete without a visit with Jolly Old St. Nick?
