Hosted by Charlie Dykes and executed by a volunteer board of community supporters, Southern Lights was launched in 2019 as a platform for individuals passionate about performing arts and entertainment who reside in small towns and rural communities of our region. This year in conjunction with Chipola College, Jackson County TDC, and many other sponsors, Southern Lights is bringing back this incredible event and giving away over $18,000 in cash and prizes.
