New Festival of Lights Sponsor: Lowes Foods!
We are proud to announce Lowes Foods as sponsor of the 2015-2016 Tanglewood Festival of Lights season. In addition to the sponsorship, Lowes Foods will bring back the marshmallow cooking experience at the Holiday Gift Village!
Locally owned and operated, Lowes Foods is a strong community partner especially given their focus on homegrown produce and local goods. Lowes Foods was founded in 1954 in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina and today employs nearly 9,000 people and operates 97 stores in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
The Gift Village is located halfway through the light show route and the marshmallow cooking will take place in the parking area. In addition to the marshmallows, the Gift Village includes the Gift Shop, concessions, and Santa and Mrs. Claus.
Festival of Lights is entering its 24th season and will be open nightly from 6:00PM to 11:00PM starting November 21, 2015 through January 3, 2016. Festival of Lights attracts an estimate of over a quarter million visitors annually.
