2023 Winter Lights Walk
Join us during the annual Winter Lights Walk as part of the Winter Solstice Festival! Local businesses sponsor and decorate trees along the downtown portion of the Chena River Walk in Griffin Park to fundraise for local charities.
FNSB Parks & Rec will host a tree lighting ceremony on December 10, 2023. There will be snowshoeing, snowpainting, and more available from 2:30-3:45pm. Tree lighting will begin at 4:00pm, at the Morris Thompson side of the trail. Each tree will have a count down from 5 before being lit! The trees will remain lit for the week of December 10- December 16. Join us back along the trail to vote on your favorite tree on December 16, 2023 from 4:30-7:30pm. You can start at the Yukon Quest Alaska Headquarters and Gift Shop or at the Morris Thompson Cultural and Visitors Center. Pick up a voting card, mark your favorite, and drop it in the box at either location.
The winning business will choose a charity to donate the profits from the event! Come out and vote on your favorite tree to support a local charity!
