The Festival of Lights out at Woodlawn Regional Park has been quite the success this year, that the staff at the park have decided to extend the display into the New Year.
Maureen Doast Woodlawn Regional Park Manager, "Festival of Lights has been going really awesome for the 2018 season, we've had an overwhelmingly positive response from participants. We've jumped from 11 participants in 2017 to 25 participants this year in 2018. And we've had an abundance of positive feedback just from people driving through and community members or just visitors that were around Estevan for the holidays. So we've just decided to extend it just a little bit longer so that people can enjoy the festive season."
Doast shared how long they have extended the hours to, "It will be open until January 7th and typically were saying from 5 to 10 our lights are on timers though, so if you come down a little bit later you may be able to catch it. Canadian Tire actually donated timers for the event for us, so every decorated site is on a timer, so at dusk, they come on. We usually have some park authority or volunteer drives through to make sure everything inflates properly, and all the lights are on. Then we usually do a drive through again around 10 and 11."
"We're just really happy to put it on for the community and that everyone can just enjoy the season."
