Thank you to everyone for your amazing support of our annual fundraiser, the Merry & Bright Holiday Light Festival! Ticket sales have been incredible, and we are now completely sold out on all scheduled dates. We are investigating the possibility of adding later time slots on a couple of evenings, and whether we can work out the necessary logistics. Stay tuned!
