Holiday Lights in the Park to Illuminate St. Paul’s Phalen Park Beginning Nov. 20

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) invites media representatives to the opening day festivities of its fifth annual Holiday Lights in the Park event on Tuesday, Nov. 20 at Phalen Park in St. Paul. Representatives from the IBEW and local charities will be on hand throughout the day to meet the needs of the media to promote this event which has raised more than $170,000 during its run as one of the state’s largest holiday lights displays.

After raising $60,000 last year, the IBEW is hoping to raise even more for those in need this holiday season through its mission: creating fun and affordable family-friendly holiday entertainment that raises funds to help meet basic life needs for children and adults in the Twin Cities metro area.
