During The Lights of Christmas, which opens December 1st, more than 100 volunteers are needed each of the 19 nights the event is open. We especially need more volunteers for the nights of December 20 through 23 and 26 through 28.
It takes people serving as parking attendants, costumed characters, greeters, ticket sellers, toy shop “elves,” hosts, 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 Lights than being on the team that puts it on!
We also need about 150 volunteers to come to Thanksgiving Working Weekend on November 24 to 27 and help put on all the finishing touches. Then, after The Lights ends for the year, we need another 150 volunteers to help with Event Take-Down, to undecorate and put the stuff away. Take Down is December 29 and 30.
As a volunteer, you can share the hope and joy of the Christmas season with the thousands of people attending The Lights. What better gift could you give? We have a volunteer task that will work for you!
If you are interested in helping before, during, or after the event, you can get more information or sign-up at The Lights of Christmas website. Or, e-mail Jessica Wilson, Volunteer Coordinator. She can answer your questions, and help you get signed up. For the best chance of getting the volunteer assignment you want, sign up as soon as possible!
