RIDGWAY -- This time of year, viewing holiday light displays is a popular pastime, and Ridgway Park's Christmas display won't disappoint.

The multiple and various displays are a combination of Christmas lights and two-dimensional cutouts illuminated with floodlights.

A Nativity and the words "Merry Christmas" overhead greet visitors entering the park. The park's roads make observing the displays accessible to anyone whether by car or foot.
