GE Lighting's Nela Park is once again brightening up the blocks along Noble Road with holiday lights this upcoming season. The official light switch ceremony is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 30.

Last year, for the first time since 1958, visitors were allowed to roll through the middle of the park campus to take in recreations of vintage light displays. However, with long wait times and backups cited as an issue, this year sees a return of the traditional display just outside of the gates.

In the works for months, more than 500,000 light bulbs are used to make the displays a reality. Expect to also see a replica of the National Tree, which GE has lit for the last 56 years in Washington, D.C.

While you're waiting for the festivities to begin, take a walk down memory lane with vintage Nela Park holiday lighting photos right here.

Light displays run through Jan. 2.
