Other Information:

Participants are asked to leave their lights on from December 1-31 from dusk until 10pm (minimum) so that the town can enjoy their efforts. Participants will be marked on a map for visitors to see.

The LACC is doing a marketing campaign to invite families to participate in the age old tradition of driving around simply to look at lights. Visitors will also be invited to participate in our other events including Lead Live, Shop Local, and events at the Historic Homestake Opera House as well as patron local businesses. Thank you for helping make Lead look like the Christmas Village it is, and for making Lead, Miles Beyond Ordinary
