Over in the small town of Alexandria, very close to where I live, is Island Park, where there's skating in the winter and pedal boats in the summer.
This year, they've done an outstanding job creating a Festival of Lights for the month of December. They've made paths through the park and have asked various local businesses to sponsor brighly-coloured trees.
Some businesses added their own flair. Richard particularly enjoyed Santa in the manger.
My camera reacted very strangely to the bright lights at night...
...and kind of created abstract images. Beautiful!
