Fargo's annual Holiday Lights display moving to Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo
The Fargo-Moorhead Sertoma Club operated the Holiday Lights display for more than 20 years in Lindenwood Park in Fargo.
WEST FARGO — The annual Holiday Lights display in Fargo's Lindenwood Park will be held at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo starting this year.
The Red River Valley Fair Association announced Friday, June 24, that it now owns and operates the Holiday Lights display.
The Holiday Lights attraction had been operated by the Fargo-Moorhead Sertoma Club for more than 20 years in Lindenwood Park, with help from the local Optimist International Club.
In 2021, the Sertoma Club's 23rd year hosting the event, the Holiday Lights drew about 16,000 vehicles to Lindenwood Park and included a record 95 displays, or 23 more than in 2020. In 2021, organizers said finding electrical hookups for so many displays was difficult.
The Holiday Lights will take place at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds, starting in the winter of 2022 as a drive-thru event.
"The businesses and organizations involved in this event are a valued role of the experience and the Red River Valley Fair Association would like to continue these relationships for the Holiday Lights at the Fairgrounds," the fair association said in a statement.
