[ARCHIVED] Lighting Wright Park for the Holidays


Every year businesses, organizations, and individuals turn Dodge City’s Wright Park into a feast for the eyes when they decorate trees throughout the park. Registration for the annual Light Up Wright Park event has already begun, and participants have until November 20 to claim their tree. The tree deemed best decorated will earn the winner $100 in Chamber Bucks.

“This is one of those events we look forward to every year,” said Director of Parks and Facilities for the City of Dodge City, Daniel Cecil. “It’s wonderful to see all the creativity we have in our community. People put in a lot of time and effort to make our park look beautiful for the holiday season, and we’re grateful for their efforts.”

Trees must be decorated no later than November 27. During the week of November 28 through December 2, a group of volunteers will judge the displays, and the winner will be named on Monday, December 5. Decorations will remain up during the holiday season but must be removed by January 8.
