Elements of Great Bend’s Christmas Trail of Lights, like these at Brit Spaugh Zoo, are starting to go up around town. The City Council Monday night approved street closures for the Home for the Holidays Festival Saturday, Nov. 27. - photo by DALE HOGG Great Bend Tribune

Great Bend’s holiday tradition the Trail of Lights opened this past weekend, but Community Coordinator Christina Hayes said she is still in need of volunteers to greet visitors to the lighted display.

The greeters are asked to work two-hour shifts, manning the booth at the trail entrance on the south side of Brit Spaugh Park. They track the number of car occupants, car tag info to see where visitors are coming from, and take donations that help maintain the light displays.

“They are just a friendly face,” Hayes said of the greeters. They also hand out visitor bags and/or candy canes. 

To volunteer, contact Hayes at 620-793-4111.
