The City Park has been lit with holiday lights in the trees, gazebo, and café lights. Driving forces behind the park’s evening illumination are Malstrom Electric, Inc., Miller Yard Care & Construction, and Project 412, a new nonprofit, community connecting organization in Detroit Lakes.
Miller Yard Care and Construction has hung 21,750 feet of wire and 7,300 bulbs to light the gazebo roof lines and about 15 trees located between the gazebo and Washington Avenue. “That’s over 4 miles of wire, and we’re excited to be part of the project,” says Josh Miller of Miller Yard Care & Construction.
Garrett Malstrom of Malstrom Electric, Inc. says that “helping to add a bit of winter magic to the City Park is a fun way to give back to the community.” The Detroit Lakes-based electrical contractor has donated their time to this effort during Ice Palace displays for the past 5 years.
The connector for the lighting project is Project 412. “By connecting people, ideas, and resources, we can become a better, stronger, and more vibrant year-round community,” says Amy Stearns, Executive Director for Project 412.
The Detroit Lakes City Park is located at 1361 Washington Avenue, near the lake. The cave people and lights will remain up and lit through Polar Fest 2023 which ends February 26.
