Franklin County Bright Sights

Making Spirits Bright: Franklin County Bright Sights

Did you ever pack into a car on a December evening and drive to nowhere, simply to gaze at the bright and beautiful lights that line main streets and the countryside? More homes are lighting up this year than ever, making spirits bright! Kids from 1 to 92 can enjoy this holiday activity and we’ve done some digging to make your adventure a little easier! Come explore Franklin County’s Bright Sights! Here you’ll find the homes that come with song and dance, the organizations and businesses who have created displays and experiences that you can safely walk or drive thru and even some roads well worth traveling! Don’t forget the sparkle and twinkle lining America’s Main Streets. Whether you take I-81, Rt. 30 or Rt. 11 to get there, you’ll enjoy driving through Shippensburg, Chambersburg, Waynesboro, Greencastle and Mercersburg’s Main Streets to see the lights, the store windows decked and of course the amazing Christmas trees that adorn each square! Grab some hot chocolate, a few treats and explore Franklin County this holiday season with this old seasonal favorite!

NOTE: Please be respectful of these private residences and mindful of their neighbors so that they may be able to continue to bring these displays to the communities each year. Best viewing is done while parked, with headlights off. Please also be mindful of others who would like to participate by not spending too much time at a display and instead take a loop back for a second look so all can enjoy!
