‘Blaze’ Christmas light show coming to Brewton next week
Brewton will have its own holiday light show set to Christmas music starting the day after Thanksgiving.
The City of Brewton will host “BLAZE” on Friday, Nov. 29 at 6 p.m. at City Park downtown.
The light show will feature thousands of holiday lights in a display set to the classic theme music from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” said Connie Baggett, director of program management for the City of Brewton.
White lights will illuminate the park starting at 5:30 p.m. followed by the 10-minute show starting at 6 p.m. The show will run continuously with short breaks through 9 p.m. Thursday through Sunday each week.
The public is invited to come be a part of BLAZE, witness the show as it makes its debut Nov. 29 and enjoy refreshments and holiday music in the park, Baggett said.
White lights will remain lit in the park through 2 a.m. nightly. The show is the first in what promises to be an annual holiday production designed to grow each year.
“Flooding destroyed much of the city’s holiday light supply when a storage area was inundated last year,” Baggett said. “BLAZE will mark the start of the city’s push to enhance holiday offerings here and share incredible sights and sounds with the region.”
In addition to the show in City Park on Belleville Avenue and U.S. 31, trails in Burnt Corn/Jennings Park will feature static displays for the public to enjoy along the walking trails throughout the holiday season.
