Help light up Pas Ka Poo Park

Festival of lights coming up at Pas Ka Poo Park, more lights needed

 

The quick and sudden change in the temperature and the dump of snow received in Alberta last week is a sure reminder that winter is here.

In keeping with the season it is time to participate in the festival of lights at Pas Ka Poo Park.

Park administrator Cheryl Jones encourages businesses to put their creative heads together and take part in the festival and help light up the park.

So far less than half of the park is decorated so there is still lots of room for more lights.

The trappers cabin, the pole shed at the truck museum, the medical museum, the A-frame building, the school house, the pond and the light pole by the fire pit could all use a little holiday brightness.

Jones reminds all participants that there is a prize for the best decorations.

“There is a lovely trophy donated by the Santa Night committee,” she said.

The park truly is a sight to behold when all the lights come on during Santa Night on Nov. 25.

Lights at the park will remain on during the holidays.

For more information or to participate in the festival of lights contact Cheryl at 403-843-2004.
