Christmas Light Show On at Nay Aug Park in Scranton

SCRANTON, Pa. - “One, two, three!”

And with that, Nay Aug Park in Scranton was switched into holiday mode.

A crowd gathered with Scranton Mayor Bill Courtright as the Christmas lights were flipped on Friday night.

Young cousins Felix and Angelina got the honors.

They're the grandchildren of Carol Oleski, a former Scranton School Board member who lost her battle to cancer in October.

Oleski was a long-time volunteer at the light show.

“The reason why I did the lights and none of them did is because my grandma died, but she plays with lights a lot, so that's maybe how I got to do the lights,” said Oleski’s grandson, Felix Tejada.

“Loved the Christmas lights. She’s volunteered so many times over at the end of the show to pass out the flyers for the city. She was so bad into the city,” said Oleski’s daughter, Katrina Oleski.

The light show at Nay Aug Park in Scranton will be on display every night from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. through December 31.
