A safe walk through the trails of Onondaga Lake Park during daylight hours certainly finds what cars later will drive past during the nighttime Lights on the Lake.
The displays are quite festive even uncharged, I think as I use my iPhone 8.
The park closes to walkers at 4:30, I’m told by signs. So I’m plotting how it will be dark enough for me to walk through at my work-close time of 4 until I have to leave to take photos of the lights while they’re on.
No, I do not want to drive through with the other ticketed celebrators of the holiday. Walking is the way to go.
