Holiday Nights â??N Lights organizers seeking volunteers, sponsorships

Holiday Nights 'N Lights

The Holiday Nights â??N Lights event has entertained nearly 117,000 visitors for the past eight years.

The mile-long lighted trail will be on display in Greater Ottumwa Park. Nights N' Lights kicks off on Nov. 23, and will go through Dec. 28. Organizers are looking for both volunteers and sponsors, which are the two things that make this event possible.

â??We donate money for their services to a non-profit group of their choice, so last year we donated about $10,000 back into the community,â?? Ex. Dir. Tim Kurtz, Ottumwa Chamber of Commerce, said. â??We do need sponsorship. There is a fee to go through the trail. It's $10 per carload, but we also have to subsidize this with sponsorship, and individual business or individuals can sponsor the displays you would like to sponsor.â??

Over $81,000 has been donated back to the community over the course of the past eight years.

If you'd like to volunteer or sponsor a display, you can contact Tim or Brenda at (641)-682-3465.
