Lights of LIFE 2012: A Dazzling Holiday Tradition

December 6, 2012

Life University’s annual Lights of LIFE, featuring more than 100 dazzling holiday-themed light displays, has returned to the Marietta campus and will continue through Dec. 31, 2012. First introduced by Life University in 1989 as a gift to the local community, the Lights of LIFE holiday light display has become a yearly tradition. Nearly half a million spectators from the surrounding region cruise through the spectacularly illuminated campus each year, often stopping along the 1.5 mile drive to enjoy an array of seasonal entertainments, including a 65-feet-tall rendition of Santa and his sleigh, which is the largest such display in the Southeast.

New for the 2012 season, a variety of musical programs including a jazz band, percussion, brass quintet or choir will be provided by a Cobb County high school from 6 to 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The display itself is unique from year to year, and new displays are added annually. As in years past, Santa Clause will be visiting on Saturdays and Sundays. Pony rides and train rides will also return for 2012, as will the concession stand offering seasonal drinks and snacks for purchase, and the friendly goat petting zoo free of charge.

Rain or shine hours of operation are 6 to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and 6 to 11 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays. The cost of admission is $5 per car Sunday through Thursday, and $10 per car on Fridays and Saturdays, when musical entertainment will be provided. Per-car fees go to offset the cost of electricity and those associated with ongoing operations.
