Christmas in the Park keeps getting better

The Sertoma Club of Minot is once again giving a Christmas gift to the Magic City and it’s one to be excited for.

If you aren’t in the Christmas spirit yet and want to be, you might give Christmas in the Park a try. A slow drive through the park after dark to view all of the lighted decorations just might do the trick – it’s a winter wonderland again.

Sertoma has been putting on the outdoor display for more than 20 years now and it has long been tradition in many households to make the scenic drive at least once during the holidays. Some, of course, go multiple times – for themselves or maybe to treat out-of-town guests. It’s also the perfect way to begin or end a holiday outing that includes dinner and a concert or a show.

The cost is still only $5 per car and the proceeds are divided among Sertoma’s many charitable projects.

As we recently reported, the club currently has around 65 sponsors for the colorful displays so it is truly a community event. But the work, that is done by Sertoma members.

“It’s all decorated by volunteers, all Sertoma members, and their families and some coworkers that pitch in,” Sue Stewart, secretary of the Sertoma Club of Minot, said of getting the auto tour set up each year. “We have scheduled work nights and work days on Saturdays but we really hit it hard about the beginning of October.”

The festive drive-through experience is open now through Dec. 31, from 6 to 10 p.m.

If you are new to the area, Oak Park is located in the 1500 block of Fourth Avenue Northwest, across the street from the Oak Park Theater. Just look for the lights.

And thank-you Sertoma for the beautiful gift.
