Holiday Festival of Lights Fun Run & Walk

Due to popular demand, one of the areaís most beloved family fun runs has been expanded to two nights! This year, the popular Holiday Festival of Lights Fun Run and Walk will be offered on Wednesday, November 9 AND Thursday, November 10! Join us during this two-mile non-competitive fun run and walk for a special preview of the 22nd annual Holiday Festival of Lights at James Island County Park.

Runners and walkers will be the first in Charleston to view more than 600 magical light displays. After reaching the finish line, participants are invited to enjoy the festival's amenities. Admission ticket (not receipt) is required for event entry, and must be purchased in advance. Due to the eventís popularity every year, organizers have expanded the formerly one-day fun run to accommodate more runners and walkers, but it will still likely sell out in advance. Register today to guarantee your spot in one of the nightís events!
