Nov. 28, 2012
-- Following its electrifying debut on November 16, the 20th Annual Magical Nights of Lights at North Georgia’s Lake Lanier Islands Resort® has borne witness to a steady stream of cars nightly. Hundreds of cars, minivans, buses and golf carts filled to overflowing with adoring fans have toured mile-after-mile of animated holiday light displays that include the likes of the Twelve Days of Christmas, Snow Flake Bridge, Diamond Wonder Light and more. Countless children of all ages have delighted in visits to the Holiday Visit for a twirl on the Verizon Wireless Ice Skating Rink, rides at the Christmas Carnival, roasted marshmallows at the bonfires, and visits with Santa Claus in the musically illuminated Holiday House. The fun continues this weekend with the return of an old favorite and the start of a new one.
