The Lights of Dauphin Island 2020

After a year of confusion, dismay, rebuilding, and recovery, the Dauphin Island Chamber of Commerce came to the decision to bring Holiday joy to the Island. With 60 sponsored trees covering the Island, the best time of the year was the focal point for Dauphin Island. Beginning December 5th, colored and covered trees dotted the Island in hopes of bringing the Christmas spirit down to the barrier reef island that many call home. After a busy weekend of decorating and preparation, the Island was it up in success.
