KEARNEY — The Kearney Park and Recreation Department is coordinating the second annual Holiday Light Festival. The event will be Saturday through Dec. 15 at Yanney Heritage Park.

Special “Activity Nights” will be 6-8:30 p.m. Saturday, Tuesday and Dec. 14. On these nights, families may enjoy a trackless train, giant snow globe, hot chocolate, Santa, photo opportunities and festive entertainment.

“Light Nights” will occur 6-8:30 p.m. Sunday and Monday as well as Dec. 11, 12 and 13. On these nights the park still will be lit up and restrooms will be available, but there will not be any additional activities. This event is free to the public.
