Ozark's "Festival of Lights" is over a mile of lights, right in the center of Ozark! Our crew starts putting up thousands of lights starting in October! Enjoy a Christmas light display representing the City of Ozark, with displays like the Old Mill and others that nod to the history and culture here in Ozark, MO.

Ozark's "Festival of Lights"  is a free drive-thru light display. Ozark's Parks and Recreation does ask for a donation at the end to help upkeep and continue to be able to provide Ozark and its citizens this opportunity. Please check the Calendar below, as there are some nights that the Drive-thru will be open to other events. 

For the last 17 years, Ozark, Missouri, has enjoyed the "Festival of Lights"  display at the Finley River Park. Each year we try and expand our offerings and the light display itself! 

A Night in the Lights:

This year we have added the event Night in the Lights. Find out more here on our Facebook page LINK
