Lights of Hope is a Christmas light drive through event in Anderson. 2014 will be the 20th anniversary for the organization. Plans are being made to move from the current 14 acres to a larger 45 acre location in 2015. This will make the event the 2nd largest in the state that returns most of its funding back to the community.
