Nights of Lights continues through Super Bowl Weekend

Complete Nights of Lights Information

One of the first things the St. Augustine City Commission did in preparation for its participation in the many events surrounding Super Bowl XXXIX was to extend the Nights Lights by a week.

By ordinance, the Nights of Lights ends each year on January 31, but this year the estimated two million white lights will remain on through February 6.

In these remaining days, the City urges those who participate in the Nights of Lights to check their displays for burnt-out bulbs or sagging cords to ensue that displays will look their best when the thousands of visitors and members of the media arrive in our area for the Super Bowl.

"We want these first time visitors and travel writers to see this nationally acclaimed holiday light display at its very best," said Paul Williamson, Director of Public Affairs for the City.

Williamson explained that the City checks every one of its displays at over 100 locations every night to maintain their appearance and now urges private property owners to do the same.

As it has been since the beginning of the program, the City of St. Augustine is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the displays on public property. Funding for the program comes from both the City and a grant from the St. Johns County Tourist Development Council.

"Much of the credit for the continued success of the Nights of Lights goes to the hundreds of business and home owners throughout the community who voluntarily participate without any financial assistance," said Williamson. "Were it not for them the city would not have the seamless display of light that creates such a stunning effect. And during Super Bowl week, we have the chance to show the whole world our beautiful city in its best light…literally."
