DAK Lights is an annual Halloween, Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day light and music show which premiered in November 2010 and relocated to Randolph Park in 2018. Every year, thousands of families from around the New River Valley and beyond visit to enjoy a roughly 25-minute light show set to music being broadcast over 103.9FM. Since its inception, the show has grown from about 3,000 incandescent (traditional) lights in white, red, and green to over 20,000 LED lights capable of producing millions of color combinations. DAK Lights has been and always will be free, offering entertainment to everyone each year!
