The 2018 light show will be turned on for the first time Thanksgiving night

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas in Guthrie Center. Local groups were at Mitchell Park Saturday and Sunday getting ready for the town’s 25th annual Light the City Park event. Volunteers placed more than 500 milk jugs Saturday that will be lit alongside the road as part of the light display. The youth Leos helped with that. Sunday, the Seely Bobcats were out at the park helping set up some bigger displays. Mary Jo Laughery said this event will be bigger and better than ever, and feature some new displays such as a miniature football game. The lights will be switched on sometime around dusk on Thanksgiving and an annual soup supper to help support the event will be held Saturday, Nov. 24 at 5 p.m. at the Guthrie Activity Center. Santa and Mrs. Claus plan to attend the event. The big light display is free for everyone to drive through throughout the Christmas season.
