Holiday Lights in the Park is a dynamic light display in Phalen Park.

IBEW Holiday Lights in the Park, the larger-than-life display of holiday-themed light sculptures, will open its gates Nov. 26 and light up St. Paul’s Phalen Park nightly through New Year’s Day.

Developed by the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and King of Kings Lutheran Church of Woodbury, Holiday Lights in the Park is a volunteer-run, charitable endeavor entering its sixth year.

Proceeds from the event will benefit Second Harvest Heartland, Union Gospel Mission, the Saint Paul Parks Conservancy, the St. Paul Police Foundation, and UnderConstruction, an organization that introduces young people to careers in the Building Trades.

Admission is $8 per car Sunday through Thursday nights and $10 per car on Fridays, Saturdays and holidays. On Dec. 3 all military families that arrive with a valid military ID will be given free admission to the display.
