Benton Readies for Festival of Lights

Benton’s Festival of Lights event is just around the corner.

Benton Public Relations Coordinator Rachel Gartner recently shared with the Benton City Council plans for this year’s event set for Friday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Dec. 2.

Gartner added Capitol Park will be lit and decorated with three different themes that will be photo backdrops for visitors to walk through and enjoy.

Something new this year according to Gartner will be a Casual Breakfast with Santa hosted by the Benton Fire Department. It will run from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 2.

Gartner says all events will be posted on the City of Benton’s website and on the Festival of Lights Facebook event page in the coming days.
