WARRICK CO., Ind. (WFIE) - The third annual Newburgh Winterlights kicked off at the Gene Aurand Trailhead on Thursday night.

This is located across the street from Mother Theresa’s Treasures.

The community is invited to visit downtown Newburgh to walk through the trail of holiday lights. This is the third year that Historic Newburgh has put on the event.

Tickets for the rain or shine event are $5 per person, and children two years old and under are free.

Every dollar goes back to local businesses and economic development in Newburgh. Families that came out Thursday say that it’s a great activity while supporting the community.

”It’s a win-win, being able to support and also be out here – have my kiddo, getting to see all the lights and all the attractions, and running around and having a big time – so we’re loving it,” first-time attendee Kalen Mills said. “Other families here seem to be loving it too. Lots of wild kids out.”

“Just come out with your family, enjoy your time,” first-time attendee Geoffrey Taylor said. “You know, it’s nice, peaceful out here. Just taking a nice stroll is kinda relaxing especially with all the lights.”

For those who are interested, you can catch the light display between 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. through Dec. 11.

Organizers say parking is available at St. John Baptist Catholic Church.
