It has become one of Harlan County’s favorite holiday
traditions! The Harlan County Celebrates Christmas Light
Display is in its 12th year and is located at the Putney
Shriner Fairgrounds in Putney, KY. It is sponsored and
maintained by the Harlan County Christian School and is free
to the public; however, donations are greatly appreciated.
Come and enjoy the thousands of lights that herald the
Christmas season. In the center arena, watch a 15 foot
Christmas tree and two 19-Foot lighted arches illuminate in
sequence to your favorite Christmas music. The music is
streamed in through an FM channel of your car radio, so
everyone gets a front row seat to the festivities. This
light display is sure to dazzle and inspire.
Drive around the light display as many times as you like
while sipping on hot chocolate or munching on a candy cane.
It is an awesome way to celebrate the Christmas season!
The hours of operation are from 6PM to 9:30PM. Opening night
will be Friday, November 23rd and will be open every
Thursday, Friday and Saturday night. In addition to every
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, the light display will also
be open on Wednesday, December 19th and Christmas Eve.
This year the Shriner train will also be running. The
Shriner train rides will be given every Friday and Saturday
evening (weather permitting) from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Also
this year, the train will be running on Christmas Eve from
6:00 PM to 9:30 PM!
We are excited to announce some new displays this year which
