Reflections in the Park, the annual lights festival that raises money for Hillcrest Family Services, is celebrating its 20th year!

Open 5-10 p.m. daily through Jan. 3 at Louis Murphy Park in Dubuque, this year’s event features about 65 displays. Runde Auto Group is a proud sponsor of Rudolph riding in a Corvette!

Tickets are $10 per vehicle. On average, about 10,000 vehicles drive through the display each year.

“It has becJuggling Snowmanome a family tradition,” said Sondra Bennett, the event coordinator. “It is a light-hearted, family-oriented event that changes every year — offering a fresh new view every year. It helps people to forget the stress of their daily lives and they get lost in the magic of the park.”

To commemorate its 20th year, the organizers will present a special gift package to the 20th car through the gates each night!

The funds raised help support more than 30 programs offered at Hillcrest Family Services that aid the homeless, provide mentors to young people, promote wellness, and more.

“(They are) vital to our community, but do not tend to be self-sufficient due to the nature of the program,” Sondra said.

New this year is a “fireworks” display – lighted displays that “explode” with color, a large Joy to the World, and a huge rocking horse.Elves Playtime

“I would like to thank our corporate sponsor Dubuque Bank & Trust and Heartland Financial USA as well as the 160 + sponsors in the park and another 35 media sponsors and some 500 volunteers needed to make Reflections in the Park the magical display that it is,” Sondra said.  “They have worked hard to present the 20th Annual Reflections in the Park – we invite you to come and catch the magic of a drive through Reflections in the Park.”
