Don’t be so sad Christmas has taken its bow.

It’s not really over, after all, until the lights come down.

Why not let Nay Aug Park light up your life a little more this week?

At the park on Mulberry Street in Scranton, you’ll find an abundance of life-size, illuminated displays still set up for your viewing pleasure, through Jan. 8.

Choose to drive through or take a romantic stroll on foot. Whatever way, your eyes are bound to widen as you pass each of the 250 light sculptures.

The park, for the eighth year in a row, offers a dazzling and extravagant display to wow visitors from 5 until 9 each night thanks to the city of Scranton’s Parks and Recreation Department.

Mark Dougher, department director, estimated about 80,000 to 100,000 cars drive through each year.

For an extra dose of ambience, hop in a carriage and get pulled through the park by horses at a cost of $5 a person on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

All money earned from donations and carriage rides helps the parks and recreation department.
