There's nothing quite like basking in the glow of Christmas lights during the holiday season, and your family can look forward to a whole new experience this year at the Nashville Sounds' First Tennessee Park (19 Junior Gilliam Way, Nashville).
GLOW promises to be Nashville's brightest outing for 36 nights. The experience runs Nov. 22 - Dec. 31 with lots of lights and fun activities.
"We are packing more than 4 million holiday lights into this beautiful ballpark," says Chis Stacey, founder and CEO of GLOW. "The sheer size and scale of our custom light sculptures has never been seen before in the region, and — with one of the country's tallest Christmas trees and many other interactive activities like ice skating and tubing — GLOW is poised to become one of the Southeast's top holiday traditions," he adds.
"GLOW is a holiday event unlike anything Nashville has experienced before," says Adam Nuse, general manager and CEO of the Nashville Sounds. "We have always wanted to activate First Tennessee Park during the holiday season, and GLOW is beyond anything we could have imagined. We look forward to being part of a new holiday tradition that is perfect for families, couples or a night out with friends," he adds.
Here are some of the things your family can look forward to during the GLOW experience:
NASHVILLE'S BRIGHTEST CHRISTMAS EXPERIENCE
With more than 4 million lights adorning hundreds of larger-than-life holiday sculptures, GLOW earns the bragging rights for most lights. GLOW promises to bring the tallest Christmas tree in the South at more than 100 feet — that's gonna be a sight to behold!
