As the days grow shorter, holiday lights will soon begin to illuminate the early onset darkness. Outdoor holiday decorating continues to be a popular tradition with options from inflatable snow-globed winter scenes to animated reindeer lined across a rooftop.

While individual households may or may not deck their halls, the village of Stockholm will light up as one for a unique event.

The first Holiday Festival of Lights is set to begin Saturday Nov. 2, during Women’s Weekend.

The creative concept is spearheaded by lighting designer and citizen architect John A. Myklebust.

The lighting design concept includes two phases. The first phase amplifies porch details and other architectural features of each shop. The second phase explores how seasonal lighting can embellish the large open space behind several shops.

Myklebust says that all merchants have enthusiastically agreed to participate using the energy efficient application he selected.

As an architect, he understands the architectural design issues and challenges in lighting design of architectural, entertainment, retail, institutional and residential projects and consistently seeks creative, efficient lighting systems, embracing new technological and strategic opportunities.

The lighting creation will be lighted through Jan. 19.
