Expect this year's the 29th Lights on the Lake to be bigger and brighter than ever!

The lights on Onondaga Lake Park now cover 2.5 miles and have added a brand new section.

The county has added the North Pole Station in the Old Victorian Village. It's the first time in a decade that the exhibit has been expanded, and the extra lights will allow for additional cars to be driving through at one time.

A few of the more popular light displays were also updated.

"Anyone who has been to the show will recognize the mountain behind us and the castle,” said Onondaga County Parks Commissioner Bill Lansley. “They're iconic because you actually drive right through the middle of them. But we actually sent them to Florida.  They're restored bright and beautiful and we're excited for people to come out and see them, kind of new after twenty years."

You can walk the parkway for the lights on the lake stroll right now. It runs through 9:00 p.m. Tuesday. It's free, but a $2.00 donation is suggested for Hillside scholarship.

Wednesday night is the dog walk, and all donations will go to Humane CNY. Starting Thursday, Lights on the Lake is open from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. nightly.
