In 2009, the Humboldt & District of Commerce started the Festival of Lights in the Humboldt Campground as an alternative to having a winter parade. This event allows businesses and organizations to send Christmas Greetings to the community for several months and allows the residents of our region to enjoy a beautiful Christmas display over and over again during the season.
The Festival of Lights is 100% sponsored by business and organizations. Sites are decorated by individual businesses and organizations using their own employee time and imaginations. There is no admission, but rather a Silver Collection box, in which all proceeds over and above costs go to charity. Charities of choice in the past have included the Humboldt District Hospital Foundation, the JCI Spray Park Project and the Kinette’s Christmas Cheer fund. This year’s charity is Safe Communities, specifically their P.A.R.T.Y. Program (Prevent Alcohol and Risk Related Trauma in Youth). The P.A.R.T.Y. Program is a dynamic, interactive, injury prevention program aimed at teens, to help educate them about the consequences of poor decision-making in relation to risk-taking behaviours such as: drinking or texting and driving, taking drugs, lack of seatbelt use, lack of helmet use, unsafe water activity, etc.
