The Lights of Christmas: A Community Event
Our community is a huge part of who we are as The Lights of Christmas. Our staff and volunteers help put the event together, local businesses help with promotion, donors support the big picture, and the people attend the event with their friends and family.
Over the last year, we worked to create bigger and brighter displays and I am excited for what we are accomplishing together. Volunteers were here all summer working on new displays like Icicle Falls, The Wandering Star, and the Believe display among many other projects this year.
We were also blessed with, and remain incredibly grateful for, a donation that allowed us to elevate the Christmas story with an expansion of our Nativity scene. It will have three additional scenes before you arrive at the manger scene, including the three wise men and the shepherds
watching their flock.
We also worked with a local company to develop The Lights of Christmas mobile app to download before you arrive at the event. There are many elements included like a reading of the Christmas story, an Advent calendar, Bruce the Spruce jokes, Storytelling, and more. You can enjoy both at the event and at home.
We are so grateful for these relationships and continue to grow an event together that allows everyone to share in the joy of Christmas. My hope for this year is our community will experience that joy and share it wherever they go. I look forward to seeing you all at the Drive-Thru this year.
As Bruce the Spruce would say, “Cedar Later!”
