ATTLEBORO â€” A Christmas tradition for thousands of families for well over half a century, the Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette in Attleboro will flip the switch on its Christmas Festival of Lights Thanksgiving Day on Nov. 28.
But this yearâ€™s 60th annual festival, which features more than 350,000 lights illuminating over 10 acres, will incorporate a whopping 800,000 LED lights â€” twice as many as last year â€“ making the shrine a leader in energy efficiency.
A third of the lights were made possible thanks to donations.
