In a year of unprecedented change and disruption, WRAL-TV, in partnership with The City of Raleigh and with support from Artsplosure/First Night Raleigh have joined forces to provide a new holiday experience: WRAL Nights of Lights.

Taking place along a 1.3-mile route inside Dorothea Dix Park, the event aims to provide an opportunity for the community to celebrate the holidays in a safe, crowd less environment.
