NIGHT LIGHTS at Griffis Sculpture Park Ends Oct. 12
EAST OTTO, N.Y. — The NIGHT LIGHTS at Griffis Sculpture Park show will conclude Sunday, Oct. 12 and will begin at 7:30 p.m. The light show was originally going to conclude on Saturday, Oct. 11, but it was extended one night to due to the holiday weekend and the nearby Ellicottville Fall Festival. So far, over 1,100 people have attended the NIGHT LIGHTS show in the previous two weeks.
“The public’s reaction to the show has been phenomenal,” said show coordinator Doug Sitler. “Our visitors have been coming in from all over Western New York to see the sculptures and lights. The event has been another way for people to reconnect with the wonderful sculpture park.”
At NIGHT LIGHTS, guest venture through a portion of the Mill Valley Road site of the sculpture park, where the trails and sculptures will interact with creative lighting, creating a truly unique experience. Guests are encouraged to bring flashlights for a few darker sections of the trail.
Admission is $10 adults, $5 children7–12, and free for age 6 and under. Please note the event can be canceled due to heavy rain.
Over 250 sculptures reside at the 300-acre Griffis Sculpture Park, making it the United States’ largest sculpture park. The park is owned and operated by the Ashford Hollow Foundation, which also owns the Essex Arts Center in Buffalo, N.Y.
The mission of the Ashford Hollow Foundation is to promote the visual and performing arts as well as construct a dynamic relationship between the arts and education in Western New York to better its young people and the greater community.

The lighting and event company also produces NIGHT LIGHTS at the Gardens (Buffalo & Erie County Botanical Gardens), NIGHT LIGHTS at The Heron (Sherman), and NIGHT LIGHTS at Nannen Arboretum (Ellicottville).
