The Annual lighting of the park delights children of all ages. Seay Park is transformed into a twinkling wonderland during the holiday season. Thousands of lights illuminate numerous decorated houses. Santa makes a special appearance, and there are miniature train rides for the children. Hot chocolate and cookies are even served free of charge. This event is truly a family tradition in Blackstone.
