Join Ringgold County Conservation and the Ringgold Conservation Foundation for the fourth annual Holiday Lights in the Park event at Poe Hollow Park (2434 State Hwy 2 – Mount Ayr).
“This year’s displays are the biggest, brightest and best yet,” said RCCB director Kate Zimmerman. “Ringgold County Conservation staff has been working tirelessly to turn our park into a must visit destination for the holidays so visitors can enjoy a drive through Poe Hollow Park, marveling at the lighted displays in our winter wonderland!”
Visitors will be able to view displays from event sponsors located in the campground and to vote on their favorites.
Zimmerman reported nearly 500 individuals visited the park on the opening weekend of the event with vehicles coming from Adams, Audubon, Decatur, Page, Polk, Ringgold, Taylor, and Union counties in Iowa and others from Missouri.
Gates are open from 5:30 – 9:30 p.m.
Poe Hollow Park gate fee is $10 per vehicle for each drive through. Due to arches and tunnels, no vehicles over eight feet tall will be permitted.
All money raised from this fundraiser will go to the Liberty Lake Development Project.
Please call Ringgold County Conservation at 641-464-2787 with any questions.
