Dickinson Festival of Lights

A lighted castle awaits visitors at the annual Dickinson Festival of Lights at Paul Hopkins Park in Dickinson on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018.

The holiday season will be a little less bright for residents and visitors to the central and northern part of Galveston County.

The board of directors of the Dickinson Festival of Lights decided to cancel the 2019 event, board President Ken Suderman said last week, after contractors began replacing a wooden footbridge in Paul Hopkins Park that was submerged during Hurricane Harvey in 2017. The storm’s floods damaged the bridge’s supports and made it too dangerous to cross. It was closed to pedestrian traffic in 2018.
