ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

There are only 4 days left to experience the spectacular holiday lights at Chehaw State Park.

The park has put on The Festival of Lights each year since 1986, but folks at Chehaw say this year is the best yet.

More people are driving through to see displays made by craftsmen and welders at Chehaw.

Park officials say it's a great way to spend time with friends and family.

"It's establishing those traditions you know that is one thing that I've really begun to see is that the light show is something that families take part in. It's not something that you do solo. It's that there is a group of people, grandparents, and that is an important part that Chehaw plays with the community," says Kevin Hils with the Chehaw.

Festival of Lights will run through December 30th.  Tickets are $15.00 per car. You can also take a train ride for an extra $3.00.
