DICKINSON (WBNG) -- The Broome County Festival of Lights announced Thursday that it acquired the Tall Pines Players Club Forest of Lights.

Additionally, the Festival of Lights announced an expansion to the winter event that includes out-of-the-vehicle activities.

The event, which began in 2020 as a drive-thru holiday light show in face of the COVID-19 pandemic, is held at Otsiningo Park in the Town of Dickinson. This year, it will run from Nov. 21 to Jan. 1, 2023.

Organizers of the event noted that the Festival of Lights acquired the inventory of holiday lights and displays from Tall Pines, which is in Friendsville, Pa.

“Now with millions of holiday lights, this isn’t just a drive-thru lights show; it’s an entire holiday experience for the whole family to enjoy,” said Event Coordinator Dave Pessagno. “Not only will this year’s Festival of Lights bring the magic of the holiday season to Broome County families, but it will attract thousands of visitors from across New York and Pennsylvania.”

Organizers said more exciting information would be released at a later date.
