New displays to be featured in the Festival of Lights

This December, some new displays will be lighting up Airdrie’s Nose Creek Park with holiday cheer.

The Airdrie Festival of Lights Society (AFOLS) has announced that $39,000 worth of lights has been pruchased for the 2018 season including a display of the “Twelve Days of Christmas”.

“These will be the first new displays added to the line-up since the ‘Skating Party’ was purchased almost 15 years ago,” said AFOLS Coordinator Michelle Pirzek.

“Ask any of our founding members, this particular grouping has been on the wish list since we opened 23 years ago.”

AFOLS is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that works year-round to operate the annual festival in December.

In 2017, over 3,000 volunteer hours were logged to plan and organize the event.

More than 60,000 visitors walked through Nose Creek Park to visit the 2017 Festival of Lights, which made it the highest attended season to date.
