GE Lighting's Nela Park is once again brightening up the blocks along Noble Road with holiday lights this upcoming season. The official light switch ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 6.

Two years ago, for the first time since 1958, visitors were allowed to roll through the middle of the park campus to take in recreations of vintage light displays. However, with long wait times and backups cited as an issue, this year once again sees a return of the traditional display just outside of the gates and down Noble Road.

In the works for months, more than 500,000 LED light bulbs are used to make this year's Deck the Halls-themed displays a reality. Expect to also see a replica of the National Tree, which GE has lit for the last 57 years in Washington, D.C., along with a large, red ornament selfie station.



The lights will remain on through Jan. 6.

While you're waiting for the festivities to begin, take a walk down memory lane with vintage Nela Park holiday lighting photos right here.
