Broome County’s popular Christmas light display at Otsiningo Park heralds what is literally a “brilliant idea.” The Broome County Festival of Lights has acquired the Tall Pines Forest of Lights in Pennsylvania’s entire inventory of lights and displays.
The Broome County festival, now in its third year, will now serve Pennsylvania and upstate New York and plans to expand from a simple drive-thru to what’s called “a complete holiday for the whole family”. This will include “out-of-vehicle experiences, including tours and photos with Santa Claus and food and drink vendors.”
Event coordinator Dave Pessagno said organizers expected this year’s festival to draw thousands of visitors from New York and Pennsylvania.
As in previous years, the event will offer special evenings for fundraising opportunities for local nonprofits, clubs, schools, and church groups. There were also special admission rates in the past for veterans.

The 2022 Broome County Festival of Lights at Otsiningo Park in the town of Dickinson is scheduled to run from November 21 to January 1.
The holiday light show has been an on-and-off event over the years with different host groups and locations over the years. There had been some shortcomings in the presentation due to lack of funding and even flooding.
The Spiedie Fest organization in 2020 implemented a lean presentation to give families a safe way to enjoy the holidays together during the holidays and the organizers took the opportunity to reevaluate the show and plan for future growth through the experience gained. over the past two years.
More information on admission prices, fireworks and special evenings will be closer to the opening of the exhibition.
