It Takes A Lot!
How many volunteers does it take to make The Lights of Christmas happen? There are a little over 2,600 volunteer work slots to be filled by more than 800 individuals! These include parking attendants, costumed characters, greeters, ticket sellers, Toy Shop “elves”, security help, and more. The volunteers provide the smiles and warm hospitality that the event is best known for. Plus, the volunteers get to be a part of an amazing event. What better way to experience the Holiday season!
Not only does it take a colossal volunteer effort each night the event is open, but in the month prior to the event and the week after it closes, hundreds of unseen volunteers help to set up and take down this festive spectacle.
Between November 22 and 24, we need 15 volunteers to help. We need about 150 volunteers to come to Thanksgiving Working Weekend, November 26 to 28. Then, from November 29 to December 1 we need another 15 volunteers. From December 2 to December 29 we need up to 120 volunteers each night the event is open. And then for take-down on December 30 and 31, we will need about 150 people.
Whew! Are you out of breath yet? As a volunteer, you can share the hope and joy of the Christmas season this year with the thousands of people attending The Lights. We have a volunteer task that will work for you!
