A new holiday-light exhibit will turn Jackson’s city park into a winter wonderland next month. The Jackson Community Outreach board is hoping the new exhibit, called the Holiday Extravaganza, will help bolster the city as a regional holiday destination. Board member Angelia Thomas explained this year’s inaugural display is the start of a long-term annual plan. The display will run from the entrance to the park on the pool side, along Hubble Creek to the pavilion, with a special canopy of lights over the park’s footbridge. City administrator Jim Roach says although the display’s construction will be privately funded, it will use city electricity. The rest of the project will be funded by private donations. Thomas said the total cost of the project isn’t clear yet, because sponsors continue to sign up. There are more than 50 donors. The exhibit will open with a celebration the day after Thanksgiving from 5 to 7 p.m. with horse-drawn carriage rides, food and some Jackson firefighters. Another celebration is planned from 6 to 8 p.m. Dec. 12. The display also will be open until New Year’s Eve, and there are plans to bring it back for the next two winters as well.
