Some more info from the Memphis Means Music blog:
For anyone living in Memphis in the years 1994 to 1998 you will remember Starry Nights. It was a marvelous animated light show held every Holiday Season at Shelby Farms Park. It closed after 1998 but now – 10 years later it is coming back – bigger – better and ready to wow kids, of all ages. Starry Nights 2009 opens on Friday, November 27 and runs until January 2 – every night at Shelby Farms Park. It’s $20 a car – so load up the family and come be amazed.
