The numbers are in for the Illuminights holiday display at Explore Park. 43,097 people paid to walk through the light show trail that was also a joint fundraising effort from Roanoke County Parks, Recreation & Tourism and Center in the Square. The initial year attendance target was 25,000.  It will take about a month to take down the Illuminights display – it took two months to set up. They’ll make some changes next time to keep it fresh.
