"The most tastefully tacky light display in the Southeast!"

A Hilton Head Island holiday tradition for over 20 years returns to Shelter Cove Towne Centre for the 2016 holiday season! With the blessing of founders (and Dove Street residents!) Paul & Kristi Beckler and Rob Lolik, visitors from across the region can experience the magic of the cascading and tastefully tacky Hilton Head Island Christmas lights display. Park your car, stroll through the lights, falling snow (bubbles!) and even a skating rink in the park, all while enjoying nightly entertainment, shopping, dining and much more!

Presented by Kroger and the merchants of Shelter Cove Towne Centre, the Dove Street Festival of Lights™ will run from November 19, 2016 through December 31, 2016 and will be open to the public nightly from 6 to 10PM. Volunteers representing the Disaster Relief & Recovery Fund, PEP (Programs for Exceptional People) and the Island Rec Center will be accepting donations on site.

Throughout the years the Dove Street Festival of Lights™ has raised over $120,000 in cash for local non-profits, more than 40,000 cans of food for needy families as well as 20,000 presents for kids. The Festival has even been recognized by USA Today!
