Ok Nashville, come out and support the re-opening of a landmark! Tonight is the Free Gaylord Opryland Lighting Ceremony. They will even have free shuttles running to aid in parking. It’s here!
Featured on HGTV’s Best of the Holidays Show last year, you will be stretched to find a more beautiful display of lights anywhere in the country. Couple that with the excitement of Gaylord Opryland making a triumphant return after the Nashville Flood and you have an event your family will not want to miss.
I would get there early. The lighting starts at 6:00 but there’s so much more to see on the property…
My husband and I will be there all weekend to take part in the Grand Opening Celebration festivities and will be tweeting live about all the events below. Just a reminder, here is the entire schedule of events that start tomorrow:
