There is a glow of bright colorful lights and the sound of Christmas music at the end of Lakeview Avenue in Bayport at Camp Edey. It is the Girl Scouts of Suffolk County Annual Holiday Light Show.
Now in its seventh year, this light show is part of Bayport's holiday traditions. Twinkling lights are intermingled in the woods on both sides of the road, and every few yards, the theme of the lights change- from snowmen to princesses to the Empire State Building.
The Girl Scouts and many of their volunteers begin setting up the displays in October to be ready for the December opening. To get that Christmas glow, they use more then 10 miles of lights. Every year the Girls Scouts enhance and add new scenes. All proceeds from the show benefit Girl Scout programs and outreach services.
The Holiday Light Show is open every evening from 5 p.m. - 9 p.m. until Dec. 30, except for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Cost is $12 per carload. To make it even more festive while driving through the show, tune to 87.9 FM for the Girl Scout's Christmas radio station. After the show, stop by the Juliette Low Center for the Holiday Village and photos with Santa, Hall of Trees and hot cocoa.
