Park to close for lights

Richard Randell, Muskogee Parks and Recreation, straightens a string of lights that go up a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree. Honor Heights Park closes Monday Nov. 4 to begin preparations for Garden of Lights Festival. The process includes stringing over 1.2 million lights over the 132 acre park. Randell says it takes around 20 workers to put the display together as he climbs the colorful Christmas tree, stringing lights on the way. Park gates will remain closed until Nov. 28, Thanksgiving night. The light display viewing hours will be 5:30 to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 5:30 to 11:00 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. The festival entrance starts on top of Agency Hill and exits out South 48th Street. Park gates will open only during display hours, and entrance is free. Information: (918)684-6302.
