The Lights set the stage for family time and making memories. Call us old fashioned, but having traditions is important, and this event has become a festive requirement not only for local families, but also for businesses and communities.

Santa will return to the Lights next Thanksgiving (2017). Visit Santa at Holiday Lights every Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Santa's last night at the Lights is always December 23, because we all know he'll be busy the night after that!
WHY WE HOST THE LIGHTS
We invest all our festive energy into Holiday Lights for two main reasons:
That visitors can enjoy time together and will know of our existence and purpose long after the dazzling lights have been stored away.
Dear Mr. Runyon, Sponsors, and Volunteers, I just wanted to thank you all for the beautiful display again this year. This is fast becoming a tradition for our family. We had a hard time picking our favorite display.
The Mitchell Family
We support Holiday Lights to promote a positive family and community environment during a special time of the year. It promotes the great things that Helping Services does, and because of this, I have personally been enriching my life by being a mentor and making a difference in a young person’s life.
Special thanks to these generous sponsors for supporting our mission and playing a large role in making the Lights happen.
Supporting community members through giving of time, talent, and treasure has always been a cornerstone of our companies. We all believe in working closely with Helping Services and supporting their mission of promoting the well-being of children and adults living in the area.
Thank you for supporting Holiday Lights and the joy it brings.
Holiday Lights would not happen without the donated hours of hundreds of volunteers. We’d like to highlight these volunteers for their extra commitment to the Lights and to the mission of Helping Services.
