Goose Creek will be lighting up the night and getting children excited about the holiday with the city's official kick-off to the holidays.
The city will turn on its first holiday lights display around the lake at the municipal center. The show will run from 6-10 p.m. through Jan. 1.
To celebrate the new Christmas tradition, the city's Recreation Department will be hosting "Goose Creek Christmas" on Thursday from 6-8 p.m. at the lake.
Kids and families will get a look at the new light displays with a children's parade around the lake led by Mayor Michael Heitzler.
