"The lights have to be out in our three theaters for the time being as we continue to weather the challenges of the coronavirus. We see this light show as a way that The Grand can still be a bright light for the entire community," says Executive Director Mark Fields.

"When we made the difficult decision to postpone the Riverfront ice rink for the 2020 season, it was important for us to bring in another family-friendly holiday activity that was safe for all" said RDC Executive Director Megan McGlinchey. "That's why we are thrilled to partner with The Grand on this exciting project. The Winter in Wilmington Light Show will provide area families with a fun holiday activity that brings many to the Riverfront while ensuring the safety of our guests!"

"My family and I are really looking forward to a holiday light show on the Christina Riverfront and I am sure families throughout region will thoroughly enjoy this new entertainment for the winter season," said Wilmington Mayor Mike Purzycki. "I invite families all throughout Wilmington to join us for another creative way to celebrate the holidays during these unconventional times. Once again, Mark Fields and his team at The Grand, Megan McGlinchey and her colleagues at the Riverfront Development Corporation, and Scott Humphries and the staff at Light Action have come together to create what promises to be a beautiful and colorful light and sound show."
