Display a Deer / Christmas Tree

Want to help out?  How about displaying a lighted deer or a Christmas tree?

You can honor a loved one, a Veteran, a friend or someone “just because” by placing a lighted deer in the “Field of Deer” or adding a Christmas Tree to the Celebration of Holiday Lights. The holiday lights and deer will be enjoyed by the community from November 19, 2018 until January 1, 2019 from 5pm-11pm daily. More than 30,000 vehicles visited the park during this period in 2013.

If you are interested in Displaying a Deer, please check out the Field of Deer Application Form  link for details including guidelines for displaying a deer plus drop off dates and times. You can also pick up a deer application at the Staunton Parks and Recreation Department.


All deer will be displayed in a secure area at the Gypsy Hill Park pool. Deer will be placed randomly in the pool area at the discretion of the Celebration of Holiday Lights Committee.
