“Last year was an outstanding success in collecting $50,000 to support our local non-profits,” said Parks Director Ross Leigh. “We look forward to this year, opening Christmas at Panther Creek in 41 days.”
Launched in 2003, Christmas at Panther Creek consists of a 1.15-mile lighted driving tour with more than 50 displays and 700,000 lights. From November 26 to January 2, the display is open nightly at Panther Creek Park, encompassing the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.
Five agencies are selected at random and collectively receive half of the total event proceeds. These organizations will have volunteers at the gate, accepting the $5 vehicle admission.
“We were very fortunate to receive 37 applications this year,” Leigh added. “We assigned a number to each application, and the park board conducted a random drawing on October 11th to select the five agencies for 2021.”
