Time for some holiday spirit
December 3, 2020
Thanksgiving is over and it’s on to the next part of the holiday season. If you’re looking to spark a little holiday spirit, you’ll have a couple of bright and festive opportunities this weekend.
Friday will see the annual Festival of Lights parade travel through Sundance to the theme of “Yesterday and Today”. Line-up begins at 4:30 p.m. with the parade itself starting at 5:30 p.m.
Entries this year will be judged in three categories: business and organization, most unique and best use of theme.
This year, the Parade of Lights will not be followed by the traditional drawing event for the annual Sundance Chamber of Commerce raffle. Instead, this year’s fundraiser raffle will not include a drawing and tickets will be on sale via Sundance State Bank or sundancewyoming.com.
Only 250 tickets are available and the winner will be drawn on New Year’s Eve, with a $3000 cash prize. Proceeds from the raffle will go towards the purchase of a movie screen for Sundance Square, the new recreation park currently under construction next door to Old Stoney.
The winner will be notified by phone and announced on social media.
Additional Christmas joy is now available at 323 S 21st Street. Every year since 2015, Buck and Gayla Bock have created a light show for the whole community to enjoy.
The Bocks have announced that this year’s light show is now up and running and will be available between 5 and 10 p.m. every night until after the first of the year.
To enjoy the show, switch off your vehicle lights and turn to channel 88.1 on your FM dial. The show will be running to a set of fast songs and a set of traditional sings, switching out weekly.
The Bocks ask that you make a donation to the food pantry in exchange for the festive experience.
