BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Vulcan Park and Museum invites the Birmingham area to gather for the Magic of Lights: Vulcan’s Holiday Light Experience, Dec. 12 – 23 from 5-9 p.m.

 

At the top of each hour, beginning at 5:00 p.m.,  guests will enjoy a 15-minute lively array of dancing lights choreographed to delightful holiday music.  The Anvil and Museum will have extended hours until 9:00 p.m. along with complimentary hot chocolate (while supplies last).  Visitors are encouraged to shop at The Anvil for the Red Dot Sale or purchase Birmingham-themed items from local artisans such as Earthborn Pottery and Glass Studio.

 

This amazing show is made possible through the generous support from Kiwanis of Birmingham and their gift of the dynamic lighting package.

 

Joe Saling, Director of Visitor Service Experience is thrilled to provide the community with a gathering place to enjoy the holiday season.

 

“We anticipate this becoming a holiday tradition for the entire family,” Saling said. “Since we are the ‘Magic City’, it is only fitting to have a magical light show.”
