ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - In 2020, Hermitage Roanoke wanted to give the community a Christmas present. After a discussion of potential ideas, representatives thought, how about lights?

Hermitage rolled out its first annual Festival of Lights and saw such a positive response, it was brought back for a second year.

As soon as the sun sets, car after car goes through to enjoy the display. The Hermitage has set a goal of having 5,000 people attend this year.

“It’s just wonderful to look out and see cars driving through. We don’t know who they are, but they are enjoying this and it’s bringing something to them,” said the Chairwoman of the Festival of Lights, Louise Miller.

The display will stay up through New Year’s Day and the Hermitage hopes this is an annual tradition it can continue for years.

The Hermitage Roanoke is at 1009 Old Country Club Rd NW. For more information, you can find its website here.
