The 22nd-annual Lights of the Ozarks festival is up and running on the Fayetteville Downtown Square.

The six-week job to decorate the square began the first week of October and wrapped up in mid-November, just in time for the Lighting Night event on Nov. 20.

Visitors can enjoy the display each night from 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. through New Year’s Eve.

Along with the lights, holiday music will fill the air from a sound system atop the Old Post Office building in the middle of the square. Vendors are set up in various locations selling hot chocolate and other seasonal treats. Families can meet Santa Claus for photos and visit Rudolph the reindeer. Carriage rides are also available.
