Light The Park | Santa Needs Lights Campaign

Santa needs lights!  The community’s help is needed to light Washington Park and create a magical holiday destination for families from throughout the area.   

The District is  “Santa Needs Lights” fund raising campaign to offer a holiday experience reminiscent of the 1960’s park display.

Blessing Health System and Lowe’s helped kick-off the campaign. Blessing Health System provided basic lighting and will sponsor a variety of family activities. Lowe’s donated a house for Santa.  

Donations to the Santa Needs Lights campaign from businesses and the public will add lighting to as many trees as possible around Washington Park, creating an enchanting experience for families to enjoy throughout the holiday season. 

Corporate and private donations are needed by Thursday, November 1. The number of trees that can be lit is dependent on total contributions received.  Donations can be made online at, by mail, or dropped off at The District office at 128 N. 5th Street.
