Spirit of Springfield

At least one traditional event is not being cancelled this year because of the pandemic.

It was announced this week that Bright Nights at Forest Park in Springfield will be held.

The massive holiday light display will go on for a 26th year.  

There will be public health safety measures observed that will require some changes.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Judy Matt, president of Spirit of Springfield, the organization that produces Bright Nights.
