Festival of Lights begins Wednesday

December 14, 2010

In less than 48 hours, Comanche Trail Park is going to be transformed into a poinsettia paradise.

Millions of lights will switch on for the Christmas holidays at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday evening when the 14th annual Comanche Trail Festival of Lights begins at the city park.

The event, featuring hundreds of lighted attractions ranging from poinsettias to oversized Christmas cards, is expected to draw more than 20,000 visitors to this year's run, which ends Dec. 31.

Howard County Volunteer Fire Chief Tommy Sullivan informed commissioners of the situation Monday morning during the court's regular meeting.
