POINT PLEASANT — Krodel Park will have its Christmas light displays open to the public starting at 5 p.m., Monday, Nov. 18, barring any unforeseen weather delays.

Once the switch is flipped, the displays will be open every night from 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. through Dec. 31.

The lights are a free, drive-though event, but organizers of Main Street Point Pleasant say donations are appreciated.

“The money goes back to the community and the Main Street organization,” said Charles Humphreys, executive director.

Humphreys said children and adults of all ages enjoy the lights — including a Santa Claus, church, angels, and more.

“It’s mainly just to come and enjoy it and to get into the Christmas spirit,” Humphreys said.

Employees with the City of Point Pleasant have begun working at Krodel Park to assemble the Christmas light displays. The city supplies the labor and electricity for the display which has been attracting visitors to Krodel Park for the last 19 years.

“I think it’s a tradition that should keep on going,” Humphreys said.
