Must-See Displays at St. Augustine's Nights of Lights

In St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Beach, about 25mi. away, the Night of Lights is a holiday tradition. This unique celebration begins the Saturday before Thanksgiving and continues through January 31.

  • 1. St. Augustine and Ponte Vedra Night of Lights Display

    Over three million tiny white lights cover the buildings and trees, creating a twinkling blanket of light. One suggested way to experience the display on foot is to park in the lot near the Castillo de San Marco, then venture out from there for an evening to remember. Be sure to add the brightly lit Bridge of Lions to your list of photo opportunities.

  • 2. Candlelight tour at Villa Zorayda

    Villa Zorayda is a 19th century architectural wonder, a 1/10th scale replica of a portion of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain. Now a museum with an extensive collection of art and antiques, the estate was built in 1883 by Franklin W. Smith as a private home. And, during the Night of Lights celebration, they offer special night time candlelight tours.

  • 3. Holiday Boat Parade

    It should come as no surprise that this quaint coastal city is one of the few Florida cities to hold a holiday boat parade. This annual event includes sailboats, shrimp trawlers, schooners, and all types of privately owned vessels. With the background of the lighted city, the decorated and festively lit spectacle glides past the bay front and the Bridge of Lions.
