     Undimmed by the pandemic, the largest holiday light show in New England will open to the public today at sundown.


              In order for Bright Nights at Forest Park in Springfield to take place this year, there had to be some changes to satisfy public health protocols and the overnight stay-at-home advisory in Massachusetts.


              WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Judy Matt, president of Spirit of Springfield, the organization that has produced the holiday season tradition each year since 1995.
