Christmas light displays can be found in almost any town, village, or city. But one in Upstate New York is lighting up the water.

The St Lawrence River will shine for the season at the annual River Lights in Morristown, New York.

This annual event lights up the river during the darkest time of the year.

River Lights

A group of volunteers got together in 2018 to find ways to promote their beautiful community. In 2021, they came up with River Lights, a place to walk or drive through thousands of festive lights at the marina in Bayside Park for the holiday season.

A block party will kick things off with Santa and Mrs. Claus, wagon rides through Morristown, hot food and drinks, bonfires, music, and more. The free party will be on Saturday, December 10 and the lights will stay lit until January.

We're excited to bring festive lights to the St. Lawrence River and brighten up the community this holiday season.
