    This sounds like fun! I looked online and it said that there are tickets available the day of this event however when I tried to register as an individual it said that registration is closed. It does appear that there is a ticket booth though so I will show up a bit early and try to do this and meet some of you. ~Dave

    Since this is my first time with the mountaineers, will you have a sign or something so that I can recognize the group at the Rec center or will it just be obvious? Thanks!!

    Hey Karen. Do we need to mail the fantasy lights WALK form in to the Pierce Co. Parks & Recreation? The form asks for name, address, etc, amount enclosed.

    November 19, 2013

    • Karen

      No, just show up with $2. See you there.

    I'll just pay for my ticket when I arrive there (the $4) as I don't live close enuf to drive over to pick them up and I think it's too late to get one mailed-if they even to that. Hope to find you guys. I'll be there around 4 probably-don't nite drive very well.

    I've seen some very impressive light shows around the country, but this one stands out among my favorites because of it's uniqueness and creativity.
