EAST CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Nela Park holiday lighting tradition at GE Lighting headquarters in East Cleveland will continue again for the 97th year.

The ceremony will kick off on Dec. 3 at 5 p.m. at Nela Park, located at 1975 Noble Road.

While the ceremony isn’t open to the public, visitors can watch from the streets as Nela Park turns into a holiday destination.

Once the display is illuminated, visitors will be able to walk the park 24/7 until Jan. 3. The display includes nearly 1 million LED lights and it stretches along Noble Road for several blocks.

This year’s theme is “Holiday Season is in the Air” and includes nine colorfully lit vignettes:

  • Hot air balloons filled with gifts and cards
  • Santa’s reindeer
  • Festive snowmen and snowflakes galore
  • Giant iPad controls the rotating of the colors for the holiday pole trees

Visitors can enter the hot air balloon selfie station and capture a festive picture with loved ones.

There will be a replica of the National Christmas Tree. For the 59th year, GE Lighting has provided the design and lights for the National Christmas Tree that resides in Washington D.C.
