West Tennessee PBS and Discovery Park of America Partner to Spread Holiday Cheer Across the Region

Dec. 6, 2021 – Now you can get a taste of the magic of Discovery Park’s Christmas lights from your own home as West Tennessee PBS presents “Let It Glow.” The 30-minute special was filmed at the museum and heritage park’s popular light show and will air five times during the holiday season.

“The drive-thru light show has become a holiday tradition for many families around West Tennessee,” said Scott Williams, Discovery Park’s president and CEO.  “The team here has spent much of the year planning and then implementing the addition of our exciting, new Christmas lights walk-thru. We are so grateful our friends at West Tennessee PBS are as excited about it as we are and look forward to even more people getting to experience it.”

The special program includes segments filmed inside the new walk-thru. Also featured is the drive-thru that allows cars to slowly drive around the 50-acre heritage park as they experience more than a million twinkling lights synced to the beats of popular Christmas songs. Viewers will get a unique look at a Titan Missile, the outside of the 199-foot-tall Discovery Center, a settlement of log cabins and more, all decorated for the holidays.

“Discovery Park and West Tennessee PBS have been great partners since the museum first opened,” said Mike Peery, West Tennessee PBS’s General Manager and CEO. “We view this as a perfect way to wish all our viewers a Merry Christmas.”

The program was produced and edited by Miranda Barnes.
