It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Stephen C. Beachy Central Park.
College Station’s beautiful Christmas in the Park displays began in 1984 when a local family funded a couple of light panels. The displays have since grown to more than one million lights and are a holiday mainstay.
Our crews work year-round preparing the light panels to ensure they brightly shine when we flip the switch on Thanksgiving Day. The hundreds of illuminated panels — a bulb for every inch — are taped precisely to preserve the panels’ mesmerizing effects.
We offer two ways to enjoy the time-honored tradition of holiday lights at Beachy Central Park:
LIGHTS ON ● Nov. 25-Jan. 1, 6-11 p.m.
As you stroll or drive-thru through the park, you can do more than look — you can listen, too! Tune in to Christmas 97.3 FM as you drive to enjoy Christmas music provided by Bryan Broadcasting.
Admission is FREE and parking is allowed within the park.
Don’t forget to bring your wish list for Santa. Our staff has arrangements with his elves to accept letters for Santa in our North Pole mailbox outside the Central Park Office. Drop your letter off from Nov. 25-Dec. 24 to ensure safe delivery.
