According to GE Lighting, this year’s theme is “Holiday Delighter” and includes 11 colorfully lit vignettes. When you head to Nela Park to see this year's display, you'll find snowmen and snow globes, giant-sized ornaments, a gnome village, plus a holiday setting complete with a tree, train, gifts, and Santa. 

Visitors to Nela Park will also find a replica of the National Christmas Tree. For the 60th year, GE Lighting provided the design and lights for the Washington D.C. holiday staple as it celebrates its 100th anniversary.

The lighting display will stay illuminated 24/7 from now through January 2nd, 2023.

This year's holiday lighting display comes as Nela Park, the home of GE Lighting and considered the world's first industrial park, is under new ownership.

In March, an affiliate of Milwaukee-based Phoenix Investors reached a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the 109-year-old park. GE Lighting is continuing to operate in its 93-acre campus after signing a long-term lease. Approximately 250 employees work at GE Lighting.
