My son who lives in Oakton, VA recommended that we drive through Bull Run Regional park to see the annual Festival of Lights and it was quite a pleasant experience. Although I enjoyed the array of lights that have been assembled and $20 per carload is not that excessive a fee for this area, I did not find it overall to be anywhere near as impressive as the Festival of Lights on James Island, near Charleston, SC which is closer to home. On the positive side, it was very easy to reach the Bull Run location and even for a Saturday night, we had no trouble getting in and driving through it in a reasonable amount of time. The James Island, SC location is usually very crowded and one can expect a fairly long wait to get in.
