BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Vulcan Park & Museum is proud to announce a partnership with Children’s of Alabama to enable the patients and their families to enjoy the 2nd Annual Magic of Lights: Vulcan’s Holiday Light Experience from now until Dec. 23.

This experience will be broadcasted through closed-captioning television and a mobile website at the top of each hour beginning at 6p.m.

At the top of each hour, guests will enjoy a 15-minute lively array of dancing lights choreographed to delightful holiday music. With the capability of the website, the patients and their families can log in and witness a light show to music as if they were at the park.
