Space Coast Light Festival Abruptly Canceled Until Further Notice

"Due to reasons beyond our control"
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (FOX 35) – The Space Coast Light Festival – a 1.3-mile drive/walk-thru holiday light display in Palm Bay – will not happen this year “due to reasons beyond our control,” organizers posted recently on the event’s website.
“Due to reasons beyond our control, we have decided to cancel the light festival until further notice,” read a message posted to the event’s website. “However, we remain optimistic and hopeful. The magic and wonder of the Light Festival is only being paused, not extinguished.”
“We are dedicated to bringing back the festival in all its luminous glory as soon as it is feasible.”
Peter Moolhuizen told FOX 35 that Fred Poppe Regional Park in Palm Bay, where the light show relocated to in 2022, is a challenging location to host the festive show.
“The park doesn’t have any electric which was a big problem. You know, a light festival without electric just isn’t the same,” he said.
