Gainesville Date: All that Glitters

December is a time of reunion with family, but often a time of parting for couples. Before you bid farewell, spend some time around a glowing tree of your own—or a whole park full of them—at the Christmas Festival of Lights at the Stephen Foster Folk State Park in White Springs. The festival kicks off Dec. 12 with the Annual Christmas Parade, live music and refreshments. Even if you miss the opening day, other month-long activities like craft demonstrations and cuddle-worthy marshmallow roasts will make the goodbyes sweeter and the post-season’s greetings all the merrier.

The park lights up 5-9pm daily, Dec. 12 to Dec. 31. If you plan to attend Dec. 12, be sure to bring canned goods, new toys or a donation.

You can find the park 52 miles north of Gainesville, off of I-75 North at exit 439. Then, travel east on S.R. 136 for three miles and make a left onto U.S. 41. The park entrance will be on the left. Call 386-397-4331 or visit the Web site for more.
