Yahoo has featured Gulfport in its annual list of 10 U.S. cities with the best Christmas light displays.

The list, which was released last week, has Gulfport and its Harbor Lights Winter Festival ranked at No. 5 in the nation.

Here’s what Yahoo’s Karon Warren wrote:

“With more than 1.2 million lights covering 40 acres of Jones Park, it’s no wonder Gulfport is home to the state’s largest Christmas lights show. The Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival features everything from giant ornaments to elaborate festive scenes to a ‘dancing trees’ show. In addition to the lights, visitors can watch the elves work at Santa’s village, ride carnival rides, take a train ride, or visit with the big man himself 

You can even hop on the heated CTA Trolley along Jones Park Drive for a ride from one side of the park to the other, offering a different perspective on the glowing lights.”

The Gulfport Harbor Lights Winter Festival opens Friday, November 25, and stays open until Saturday, December 31. Tickets are $15 for those 13 and older, $5 for children ages 5 to 12, and free for children under 5.
