DUNWOODY, Ga. (CW69 News at10) –Dunwoody Parks & Recreation will bring in three times as many lights as last year for this year’s Holiday Lights, a brilliant, walk-thru display at Brook Run Park for all to enjoy. Opening night festivities will take place on Dec. 1 from 5 to 8 p.m. Dunwoody Mayor Lynn Deutsch will flip the switch on the lights at 6 p.m.

“We thought last year’s Holiday Lights would be a one-time celebration because of COVID. However, the event was so successful and loved by our community that we’ve decided to make it a new tradition,” said Mayor Deutsch.
