The fifth annual Lights 4 Hope drive-thru holiday light display kicks off this week, raising money for families coping with a child’s terminal illness or life-changing physical changes.
Thousands of twinkling lights compose the display that stretches for two miles at Okeeheelee Park, 7715 Forest Hill Blvd., just east of Wellington. It opens this Friday, Nov. 18, from 6 to 10 p.m. and will be open from 6 to 10 p.m. each Friday-Saturday and 6 to 9 p.m. each Sunday through the end of December.
According to a news release, about 30,000 spectators are expected this year. Every dollar of proceeds goes back to local families to help provide some relief and financial support. The displays are created by skilled volunteers and paid for with donations and sponsorships.
Admission starts at $15 per car, not per person. The price goes up to $25 for a vehicle with nine to 12 people, and $35 for a vehicle with 13 or more people.
