All over the City of St. Augustine crews of city workers, residents and business owners alike are checking connections and replacing light bulbs, because no one wants to be left in the dark with then Nights of Lights begins its 20th year on November 23.

With just a few weeks to go until the start of the city’s annual holiday celebration, lighting preparations by city crews are nearing completion on public buildings and throughout the city’s many parks as strands of lights are hung over massive live oaks and wrapped around the tall straight palms that line the streets.

Equally busy are the hundreds of residents and business owners who are working diligently outlining nearly every roof line and arched doorway of the Spanish Colonial buildings and the tall sturdy towers of the 19th Century hotels.

Then when the lights are turned on November 23, all the hard work pays off as the Nation’s Oldest City becomes a City of Light with a magnificent display of white lights that shine through the end of January.
