Be A Part Of Bull Run Festival of Lights

The Bull Run Festival of Lights is the largest light show in the Washington Metropolitan area, and this winter it is more popular than ever before. The numbers are staggering: over 60,000 cars this year and around 240,000 people have enjoyed the over 2,000,000 lights! And the show is not over.

Some of the two million lights

According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The Bull Run Festival of Lights was the first all-LED light show in the country when it opened in 2006. Every year since significant new displays have been added to this over 2.5-mile show. Today the number of lights is well over two million! And the effect is magical. The snow tubes in the woods make it look like it is snowing lights in areas. It takes five semi-truck trailers and a large building to hold all the displays when the show is not in operation. Thousands of people a year go to Bull Run to camp, picnic, go to the waterpark and attend special events, but by far, the greatest attraction is the annual light show.”

As per Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The success of the Bull Run Festival of Lights inspired the creation of the Meadowlark Winter Walk of Lights six years ago and the Cameron Run Ice and Lights one year ago. NOVA Parks is doing its best to brighten this winter all over Northern Virginia.”
