Just as we did last year, we attended the Annual Night of Lights in downtown Horton. When I was a kid, it was standing in the middle of the 4 corners, eating popcorn, drinking hot chocolate, signing Christmas carols, and waiting for Santa to arrive. Now there may have been more than that, but that's what I remember.
Reinvent Horton has taken the Night of Lights to a whole new level. The past two years, it has been held in the civic building. There is a free will donation supper, Santa is there for photos, and Christmas movies are playing. There is usually quite a crowd too.
This year Ollie was not too keen on Santa.
The Santa photos were the only pictures that I took this year at the Night of Lights. That must have been because we were too busy winning prizes!! Haha! Everybody that attends gets entered into drawings for prizes and let's just say that we made out pretty well. Jim, Marcia, Derrick, Heidi, Carter, Tyson, Riley ,and Oliver were all called for prizes. Oliver got a wooden puzzle and Riley got a gift card to the western store in town. Tyson was getting discouraged because they weren't calling his name, but he did end up winning a bike towards the very end!
Once they were finished with all the prizes they thanked everybody and announced that they decided to give away one big grand prize. It was $500 towards the purchase of a Traeger grill. And whose name do you supposed they called? -- MINE! :)
