ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The staff at Chehaw Park is hard at work getting ready for Christmas.

From Philema Road, you can already see some of the lots they've put up for the festival of lights.

It kicks off December 3rd with a Bike night. It will be open to  everyone the following day.

"Our staff really enjoys doing the lights on their own," said Chehaw Park's Morgan Burnette. "It gives them a little freedom to mix things up every year. Keep things interesting. And they seem to really enjoy making sure the people enjoy it. They get a kick out of that."

The lights will be visible from now through the holiday season.
