Annual Girl Scouts Holiday Light Show in Bayport NY
 
The 6th Annual Girl Scouts Holiday Light Show is shining bright every night from 5pm-9pm at Camp Edey in Bayport until December 30th. They will be closed on December 24th and 25th. Cost is $12 per car.

This event is rated as one of the top light shows in the area. Listen to their own commercial free radio station 87.9 FM, as you drive through the woods shining with the thousands of lights that the staff and volunteers of Suffolk County Girl Scouts assembled. And it is not the same old show, because every year new displays are built. This year there is about five miles of rope lights used on the trail.

One of the new spectacular displays is a 23 foot tall Empire State Building. Every display has a theme and all the light scenes are easily viewed out of both sides of your car. So everyone has a great seat. At the gate, when you pay, make sure to get the free 3-D firework glasses for the kids. It makes viewing the lights extra sparkly for them.

After driving pass all the lights, stop into the Holiday Village for more festive fun. Santa is available to hear Christmas wishes on these dates. On December 10th Hauppauge High School Chamber Choir is performing at 7pm and December 18th Girl Scouts of Nassau Country Chorus will be singing holiday songs at 7:30pm. Also visit the Hall of Trees to see Christmas trees decorated by different troops. Here is a coupon for a free photo CD at the Holiday Village.

The Girl Scouts start construction on new displays in January, finishing in the summer. Then in October, the set up of all the displays starts. After the last car drives through in the end December, it takes them about a week to break all the displays down and start all over again.

Last year The Holiday Light Show raised close to $100,000. All these proceeds go to help Girl Scout program and outreach services. It also allows them to give to children in need the funds to attend their summer camp program.

Follow the signs to Camp Edey, 600 Lakeview Avenue, Bayport to see the Girl Scout's Holiday Light Show.
