FLOWERS FOODS PRESENTS “CHRISTMAS IN LIGHTS”

THOMASVILLE, Ga. – “Christmas in Lights,” Flowers Foods’ annual holiday gift to the community, will once again light up the night sky with twinkling yuletide displays for the public to enjoy throughout the holiday season.

“We invite everyone in the community to take a break from today’s stresses with a leisurely drive though our holiday display,” said Mary Krier, senior vice president of communications and corporate responsibility. “It’s hard to believe this is our 25th year and that so many who enjoyed the display as children are now bringing their children. We hope this tradition continues to brighten the holidays for all.”

Christmas in Lights features more than 20 holiday vignettes and 25,000 energy-efficient LED lights throughout the grounds of Flowers’ home office in Thomasville. Free to the public, the display will be open every evening from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. beginning the Sunday before Thanksgiving and running through New Year’s Eve.

The entrance is through the gates on U.S. 19 South, near the intersection with Old Monticello Road. Visitors are asked to turn off their headlights, observe the 5-mph speed limit, and remain in their vehicles at all times.

Christmas in Lights made its debut in 1995 and was inspired by W. H. Flowers, Jr., longtime company chairman and CEO, who had a special fondness for Christmas.
