Lights on the Island
November 13, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - December 25, 2020 @ 9:00 pm
Over a decade ago, with the donation of just a few Christmas lights, Lights On The Island was born. Since then, the annual event has grown into a spectacular light show for hundreds of visitors. Over 300 light displays in several animated displays cover the entire island. Each year, children anxiously await the huge dinosaurs, the tumbling bears and even Santa Claus! Visitors to Lights on the Island wrap up in blankets, climb aboard a lighted carriage and enjoy the short ride through the lights guided by volunteers. A joint effort of the staff at Lake Wister State Park, LeFlore County Development Coalition and Poteau Chamber of Commerce, each new season is bigger and brighter than the year before. Donations accepted.
