When does the Historic Smithville Christmas Light Show start?
From dark (5:30 pm) to 8:30 pm…Enjoy popular songs of the Holiday Season synchronized with a dazzling Christmas tree light show sure to get you in the Holiday spirit.
Christmas Trees made from over 50,000 Christmas lights magically float on Lake Meone in the center of Historic Smithville. The moment darkness falls, an orchestrated show of lights and music is played out across the lake.
The lights dance and chase each other to the music all the while reflecting of the water’s surface. This show can be seen from either side of the village as well as the bridge. The show runs in loops of about 30 minutes, so anytime you arrive from 5:30-8:30 pm you will be able to catch the entire show!
Watch a previous Historic Smithville Christmas light show video we’ve recorded.
