Everyone goes to see the tree in Marion Square, but just a few blocks away on the College of Charleston campus you’ll find one of the most spectacular lights shows in town. The Cistern Yard is draped with lights that twinkle and blink to the music in this holiday tradition.

The half-hour program will be held nightly beginning at 5:30 p.m. with the last show nightly at 9 p.m. Please note that all people attending Cougar Night Lights must adhere to the College of Charleston social distancing and face mask requirements while on campus.

The show was produced and designed by CofC alumnus John Reynolds, a multi-Emmy award winning lighting designer who has done work for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Super Bowl.

Cougar Night Lights is free and open to the public. Cistern Yard is located at the corner of George and St. Philip streets. Public parking garages are available at two locations, including the George Street Garage and St. Philip Street Garage.

Cougar Night Lights will run nightly through Jan. 1, 2021.
