Hundreds of thousands of lights will adorn a Christmas display in east Salina.
Prairie Lane Park at First Christian Church in Salina will be lit up with over 50,000 lights from 6:00 – 8:00 pm, December 17-24.
“We want all ages to come and enjoy the beautiful lights, shining in the darkness, as they prepare to celebrate Christmas,” says First Christian Church Pastor Greg Rea. The light display was designed by Salina native Andrew Knak, who now lives in Manhattan. “Andrew has spent long hours leading a team of volunteers to install the lights over the last two weeks,” shared Pastor Rea.
The display includes lights around the nearly quarter mile Reflection Path, three 24 ft.
Christmas trees, a number of 10 ft. trees and over a dozen smaller ones. In addition to enjoying the lights, the church will also be providing hot chocolate and cookies in the church’s reception room from 6-8 pm. Located at 2727 E. Crawford, at the intersection of Crawford and Prairie Lane, “the park was built as a place for Community, Harmony and Reflection,” continues Pastor Rea. “We believe that the light display will embrace all three.”
