Hundreds came out to enjoy a mesmerizing holiday display on Elf night at Dorothy B Oven park.

Some cites across the nation are scaling back on their holiday lights and even parades to cope with budget cuts- but not Tallahassee.

The city of pays to keep the 25,000 light, holiday wonderland up and running for a full month.

While there are only a few strands of L-E-D lights, the city says they do re-use a lot of their decorations to try and keep the costs low.

Debbie Pullen with Tallahassee Parks and Recreation says "It's amazing. I think we're going to hit close to 4,000 people this year Maybe more I can't tell. It's hard to count they are moving around so much. We're glad it's turned out to be a nice evening and kids are enjoying it."

The electricity bill for the month isn't in yet- BUT City officials say being able to bring families together and put a smile on their face is priceless.
