Festival of Lights needs volunteers

July 29, 2011

Christmas may be a few months away still, but preparations for the 2011 Comanche Trail Festival of Lights are already glowing brightly.

“I think this will be the most spectacular presentation yet for our visitors,” said Pat Simmons, Festival of Lights founder. This year will bring back the poinsettias to Scenic Mountain.

According to Simmons, three years ago three poinsettias adorned the side of the mountain, but due to lack of power supply were taken down and haven't been included the past few years.

“The Indian Hills residents will love it,” Simmons said. “I guess having those up there made it more Christmasy.”

Due to a generous donation, new generators are being purchased in order to allow the inclusion of the poinsettias again this year. As for the exhibits in the park, a few will be changing locations and some new ones will be added.

Of course, with all the changes more manpower is needed.
