Coming soon is a free holiday light event that would warm even the Grinch’s heart. Back from last year and now an annual display, The Greenville Tinsel Town Tour of Lights is returning with double the number of holiday light scenes. Community members and visitors can view more than 70 dazzling displays along public roads in Greenville, KY.
Visitors of all ages can cruise through the light tour for free in the comfort of their vehicle and spot snowmen, reindeer, elves, candy canes, and more! The glimmering light scenes will be up from Nov. 25, 2021, to Jan. 9, 2022, offering plenty of chances to drive by more than once this holiday season.
Commenting on the success of Tinsel Town, Greenville Tourism Director, Amy Gardner said, “Our community and many visitors loved Tinsel Town last year. This year, we were able to expand the number of winter scenes with the help of generous sponsors. We are proud to be able to offer a family-friendly event in the area, and hope this will bring Christmas cheer to all who would like to visit.”
Those looking to see the lights can begin their journey along the holiday-themed path at 480 Hopkinsville St.; but anyone driving the streets of Greenville will notice that there are scenes up on Main St., Cherry St., East Main Cross St., W Depot St., Rails to Trails, Luzerne Lake, and more.

“We are excited to bring our Tinsel Town Tour of Lights back this year. GTC strives to involve our community in all that we do. It takes a village to make things happen and we are thankful for ours who help Greenville grow. This is a great way to bring community, family, and friends together this Christmas season.” said Greenville Tourism Commission Chairman, Sabrina Scott.
