The 26th Annual Nights of Lights dazzles the city as some three million lights adorn every corner of the historic district for two months. Watch how the city of St Augustine flips the switch two times, first to light the enormous Christmas tree and then a second time to light the City of St Augustine. This award-winning holiday lights display runs from November 23, 2019, to February 2, 2020, in historic St. Augustine. During the seasonal display, businesses downtown stay open later, letting you dine in view of the lights and browse the shops of the decorated buildings.
Day: November 23, 2019
On Friday, though, there was a celebration for the groundbreaking of the St. Augustine (VA) Community Based Outpatient Clinic at 100 Deerfield Preserve Blvd. (just off State Road 207). It will open in about a year and should then be named the Leo C. Chase Jr. Department of Veterans Affairs Clinic in honor of the county’s first solider to die in the Vietnam War. The ceremony Friday attracted Gov. Ron DeSantis, who attended the opening of the temporary facility as a member of Congress in 2015, Rep. John Rutherford (R-Jacksonville), county commissioners, St. Augustine and St. Augustine Beach commissioners, members of the Chase family and various others associated with the project.
