FARGO — A record number of displays are a part of this year's Holiday of Lights at Lindenwood Park that starts Thanksgiving night and runs through Dec. 31 from 5:30 to 10 p.m. daily.
Organizer Darrell Vasvick, treasurer for the sponsoring Fargo-Moorhead Sertoma Club, said there are 95 displays this year, which is 23 more than last year.
He said finding electrical hookups was a problem because of the large increase.
Despite a new concrete loop road in the park, the old road that runs closer to the Red River will be opened for the display. He said next year, they are planning to have a double loop display using both the new and old roads.
Admission is $10 per vehicle and $15 for a bus or limousine.
The club, which is assisted by the local Optimist International Club, also collects canned goods for the local food shelves as well as donating some of the funds raised.
Vasvick said they also provide charitable donations to children with speech and hearing difficulties, community projects, scholarships, the local First Link helpline and other organizations.
This is the club's 23rd event. Last year, about 16,000 vehicles toured the display.
