Segra Holiday Lights

’Tis the Season to Be Jolly, Fayetteville and surrounding areas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year to get in the holiday spirit as Segra Stadium hosts its third annual holiday lights. The event, located in the heart of downtown Fayetteville, runs from Friday, Dec. 8th, to Friday, Dec. 23rd. The event is held at Segra Stadium, located at 460 Hay St., home of the Fayetteville Woodpeckers.

Since its start in 2021, this event has drawn crowds with its holiday attractions and festive holiday activities. Kimberly Hackett, who works for the Fayetteville Woodpeckers part-time during the summer as a ticket taker and usher, shared her fantastic experience.

“I attended Holiday Lights for the first-time last year. I was so eager to see the stadium lit up. The event was a great experience, including movies playing on the big screen, a variety of decorative Christmas trees, and looking at the lights on the concourse. The apple cider also made the experience great,” Hackett stated.

Hackett enjoyed the Christmas vibe and looks forward to the new activities planned for this year’s event.
“It was a friendly atmosphere with various activities. The various activities throughout the baseball stadium are a great incentive for everyone, including children, to enjoy. I’m so eager to see the holiday decorations and lights for this year’s event,” she added.

In the stadium, guests can stroll alone among the “tens of thousands” of holiday lights and decorations extending throughout the concourse, the seats, the walk-through area, and the baseball field. Everyone, including your four-legged family members, is welcome to attend this fun-filled event.A holiday market will open throughout the event for patrons to shop for last-minute presents. Patrons can also meet, greet, and snap pictures with Santa Claus and other Christmas theme characters.
