Courthouse Light Show

The courthouse comes alive nightly with thousands of pulsating lights synchronized to holiday music. This magnificent 1881 building jumps into the 21st Century as it is bathed in colored lights, 36 animated light displays, and 15,000 lights outlining the building. The display is computer controlled with 364 electrical circuits meticulously synchronized to a holiday soundtrack, with a total of 30,000 lights.

The 2021 Guernsey County Light Show lasts one hour and runs continuously. It features a children’s set with holiday favorites and contemporary recordings featuring Gordon Hough, Cambridge saxophonist.
