Downtown Points of Light

Come downtown for a family-friendly, socially distanced, holiday celebration happening now through January 7. Thanks to our sponsor, Duke Energy, we’ve installed more lights than ever at CCB Plaza, Five Points Plaza, Black Wall Street Gardens and the Durham Central Park Bridge. And lots of downtown businesses and residents have created beautiful displays as well. So stop in, dine, shop and support local merchants while you enjoy the lights.

We’ve added a few extras to make the celebration complete:

  • The Points of Light map will help you find all the can’t-miss displays. We’ll add any new displays that come online, so check back often.
  • WDDI Radio holiday music playlist features many Durham artists.

Enjoy! And tag us at #downtowndurhampointsoflight on social.
