Lanier lights up the night

The 15th annual Magical Nights of Lights at Lake Lanier Island Resort is made up of 61/2 miles of holiday lights, including a tunnel bridge of snowflakes, a candy cane lane and an animated light story of the 12 days of Christmas. Along with the light display, visitors will see a living Nativity presented by Blackshear Place Baptist Church and can also stop at the holiday village for pony rides, roasted marshmallows and a visit to Santa's shop where they can have a photo made with Santa. The light show runs from 5 to 10 p.m. nightly through Dec. 30.
