Garden of Lights run keeps growing

You can enjoy the lights at Honor Heights Park in a unique way and support veterans while doing so.

The eighth annual Garden of Lights 5K and Fun Run is this afternoon. The proceeds from the race benefit Honor Heights Park and veterans seen at the Jack C. Montgomery VA Medical Center.

The event has grown each year, and is perfect for the family. It’s a fun, festive event even if you choose not to participate in the 5K or the fun run.

When it first started, nobody expected it would grow to such a popular event. The backdrop against the lights at Honor Heights Park make for a unique experience.

We encourage you to take part in this event, one that is uniquely Muskogee.
