Fantasy of Lights comes to life at Garvin Park

Posted: Updated:

With the flip of a switch Thursday night, the annual Ritzy's Fantasy of Lights came to life at Garvin Park.

It's the 19th year for the wintry Easter Seals fundraiser.

Easter Seals Rehabilitation Center helps kids and adults with developmental delays and disabilities - regardless of their ability to pay and this is one of their biggest fundraisers of the year.

Ali Shanks, a recipient of Easter Seals' services, was on hand to help light the place up.

"I had the best time of my life lighting the lights with Santa," said Ali.

"It's one of the days that you really realize the things that you're thankful for and we're really thankful for Easter Seals. So it was a privilege to be able to help kickoff the Fantasy of Lights," said Ali's mom, Peggy Shanks.

The light show will be open every night through January 1. Cost is $7 per car and horse drawn carriage rides are available too, they are $30.   You can walk through it on December 3.
