On Thursday, November 3, 2011, volunteers from jcpenney, one of America’s leading retailers, strung thousands of lights and set up other festive decorations at the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary in preparation for The Heard’s 3rd Annual Holiday Trail of Lights.
Holiday Trail of Lights, presented by Milestone Electric, is a fun family fundraiser, benefiting the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary. Admission from this event will help to ensure that The Heard, a nonprofit organization, will be sustained for future generations to enjoy.
This event features thousands of holiday décor and lights—many synchronized to holiday music—along a half mile Heard nature trail. Guests can have a photo taken by the professionals at Clix Photography with Father Christmas and Mother Nature in a festive setting. Also, enjoy hot beverages and treats sold by Coffee N Cream (Saturday & Sunday) and Whole Foods Market (Monday), and a portion of the proceeds will also be donated to The Heard.
Family-friendly entertainment will complement the holiday atmosphere. Listen to live holiday music in the Heard outdoor amphitheater performed by groups such as Tuned In (Saturday), McKinney Community Band (Sunday), and Cottonwood Creek Baptist Church Choir, Orchestra, and Worship Team (Monday). 94.9 KLTY will also broadcast live on December 17th from 6:30-8:30pm. New this year: watch for strolling carolers and entertainers!
Nearly four thousand people enjoyed the event last year! Support the Heard and have fun with the whole family at this holiday fundraiser. Online tickets are only $7 for adults & seniors and $4 for kids 3-12. Children 2 and under are free. Purchase tickets at the door for $2 more per ticket.
