SAINT AUGUSTINE – Saturday, Nov. 17, is Light-Up! Night, the start of the 25th year of the Nights of Lights and the City of St. Augustine is getting ready.
Crews from the Streets and Grounds Division of the Public Works Department started this week stringing lights throughout the majestic oak trees in the Plaza de la Constitución, and the city’s contractor, Angels in the Architecture, is wrapping palm trees and outlining buildings with lights in preparation for the annual event.
The city also announces the return of the park and ride shuttle that will run during the busiest nights of the Nights of Lights. Information about the shuttle and other details about Light-Up! Night is available at www.CityStAug.com/LightUpNight.

The shuttle, first launched during Nights of Lights in 2016, will operate this year from 1-11:00 p.m. and from two parking locations north of the downtown:
