Christmas in Noble Park Paducah

PADUCAH, KY – Christmas in Noble Park, sponsored by Paducah Power, is the yearly event that turns the park into a Christmas wonderland. And with a half million lights attached to hundreds of animated characters and everything-Christmas, it covers most of the 135 acres of land that makes up park.

To see the lights, you just need to drive through the entrance of Noble Park at Park Avenue and that’s it. The road takes you through the entire park and circles you back to the exit at Park Avenue.

It’s free but please help by donating money or nonperishable foods (like can goods) at the Santa House that sits a ways in on your right.

The donations go to St. Vincent DePaul Society, Family Service Society, Paducah Cooperative Ministry and the Salvation Army.  The Annual Christmas in the Park 2016 raised $43,752 and 66,893 pounds of food.

Noble Park is beautiful in the day but on a moonlit night in concert with a half million twinkling lights, it becomes a Magical place and all for a good cause.

WHEN: Nov 24 – Dec 31
Held every year between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day
