Blytheville Flips The Switch On Lights Of The Delta

Blytheville- A lot of blood, sweat and tears has gone into Lights of the Delta display.

The million dollar question: How many lights are there?

"We estimate 5 million," said Charles Moody, who works on setting up the displays. "Our electric bill ranges into the thousands."

The Lights of the Delta display sits on Blytheville's old air field.

In it's tenth year, the festival that literally lights up the entire town is back to pack a mighty punch of christmas lights done right.

"We're going to have live nativity scenes on the weekends," said Director of Lights of the Delta, George Hubbard. "We've got hayrides available every night."

General Admission is $10 per car. Rates adjust according to vehicle type. Free pictures with Santa are available on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. There are also horse and carriage rides available.
