Holiday Square In Casper Lights Up November 23rd
Ring in the holidays with the merriest of events! Join us on Sunday, November 23rd, for the Holiday Square celebration in Conwell Park across from Wyoming Medical Center. At 5:00 that afternoon, just as the skies darken, we’ll throw the switch and light up the park with over 73,000 colorful lights. Santa, Mrs. Claus and some of their favorite elves and reindeer will be there, strolling through the crowd to hand out cookies and hot chocolate… and to see who’s being extra good this year!
The fun starts early with the Reindeer Run, a 5K run/walk is a benefit run to help cancer patients undergoing treatment in Wyoming. Registration begins at 3:00 pm, race time is 4:00, and teams can have up to 8 members. Prizes will be awarded for individual male and female first place finishes, and a team and an individual prize will be awarded for best costume.
Participants will receive a mug at the end of the race to enjoy a hot chocolate or hot chocolate and Peppermint Schnapps, donated by the World Famous Wonder Bar. All funds raise go to the Angels Cancer Care program at Wyoming Medical Center Foundation. Angels help cancer patients with non-medical needs such as gas cards, grocery cards, wigs, mentoring, etc. Register online at regonline.com/ReindeerRun2014 or contact the WMC Foundation at (307) 577-2973.
In advance of the lighting ceremony, we’ll be there broadcasting live, and be joined by lots of city officials – but it won’t be a party without you.
