Light the Park will once again usher in the winter holidays as Campbell Station Road is illuminated by thousands of sparkling lights. The display begins at the commuter lot next to the Town of Farragut welcome sign on N. Campbell Station Road and continues to Founders Park at Campbell Station, the Farragut Community Center and Mayor Ralph McGill Plaza at the Campbell Station Inn. Lights come on every evening at dusk from Tuesday, Nov. 22, through Monday, Jan. 2. 

Shop Farragut and the Town of Farragut kick off Light the Park with the 11th annual Countdown to Light the Park from 5-7:30 p.m. Monday, Nov. 21, at Founders Park. A special guest in red will help flip the switch at approximately 6:30 p.m.

Additional parking will be available at the Farragut Community Center (239 Jamestowne Blvd.), the plaza at the corner of Kingston Pike and Campbell Station Road. Restrooms at Founders Park and the plaza will stay open until 10 p.m. nightly, except for Dec. 25, when restrooms are closed. 

During Light the Park, there will be gift giveaways from local vendors and organizations and live entertainment most evenings through Dec. 23. Local food trucks will serve up delicious holiday cheer through Jan. 2. A calendar detailing all activities can be found at farragutparksandrec.org/lightthepark.

Santa’s mailbox will usher all wishes directly to the North Pole! Letters can be placed in the mailbox at Founders Park for delivery by elves to the North Pole beginning Monday, Nov. 21. To receive a reply from Santa, please mail letters by Dec. 19 and include a return address!

If your group or organization is interested in passing out goodies or caroling, contact Special Event and Program Coordinator Merritt Piper at 865-218-3376 or at mpiper@townoffarragut.org.
