The 14th Annual Northern Spirit Light Show is back in full swing, after a couple of years of modified affairs.
This year there will once again be wagon rides, firepits, and hot chocolate at the event. Peace Draft Horse Club President Jody White says that it is unreal to be able to bring the full show back, especially after two years of restrictions. He says to have the community continue to support the show during that time and now being able to give back is amazing.
“Now to see the kids’ faces light up on those wagons, and to see people petting the horses again, and sitting around the campfires with hot chocolate, it’s wonderful,” White says.
Over the past several years more than $500,000 was raised for numerous charities around the region. White says that being a part of an event that gives back in such a significant way both financially and emotionally is an indescribable feeling, one that makes him feel almost small in comparison. He explains it because that is people supporting the event, sponsoring the event, and giving back to the event.
“We are just facilitating that give back to the community, so it does make you feel very humble, but there is a lot of pride in that at the end of the day.”
The Northern Spirit Light Show starts on Thursday and is open Thursdays to Sundays until December 4th. After that the show will be open every night, except for Christmas Day, until December 31st. Vehicles are $15 and wagon rides are $5 a person.
