Lighting up the holidays

Staff report

THOMASVILLE — Flowers Foods’ Christmas In Lights will open today at 6 p.m. The holiday light display is located on the grounds of the company’s corporate office on U. S. Hwy. 19 South.

Christmas In Lights is Flowers’ annual holiday gift to its hometown. Driving through the display of sparkling trees, trumpeting angels, jumping deer and the Nativity has become a holiday tradition for many in the area. First opened in 1995, the display was inspired by the late W. H. Flowers Jr., the company’s long-time chairman and chief executive officer, who had a special fondness for Christmas.

Christmas In Lights is open to the public free of charge daily from 6 p.m.-10 p.m. from through Dec. 31. The entrance of the display is through the main gates on U.S. Hwy. 19 South.

Visitors are asked to turn off their headlights, observe the 5 mph speed limit when driving through the display, and remain in their cars for safety.
