The 23rd Annual Festival of Lights Auto Tour will be held in the Redman Creek East Campground at Wappapello Lake. The event runs Nov. 27 through Dec. 27.

The Festival of Lights will be open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights from dusk until 9 p.m. until Dec. 18, when it opens on a nightly basis until closing on Dec. 27.

This event is held in partnership with the Wappapello Lake Area Association (a newly formed not-for-profit organization) and the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers at Wappapello Lake. With the help of local businesses, volunteers, churches, and other organizations within the community, it is anticipated to be one of the best holiday events in southeast Missouri.

There will be a couple of special features this year. You will be able to listen to holiday music on your vehicle’s radio courtesy of radio station KWOC as you enter the campground. There will be judging of the best decorated sites (Peoples Choice) by those viewing the lights. All visitors must remain in their vehicles during the tour.
