SURFSIDE BEACH — While there are fewer tourists walking along its beaches as winter winds gust over the island, those who still want to enjoy the beauty of Surfside Beach can take a driving tour to enjoy the Island of Lights festival all month long, Tourism Committee Chair Michelle Booth said.

The festival will kick off the holiday season with an official tree-lighting at 6 p.m. today at the corner of Bluewater Highway and Highway 332, Booth said.
