Kyle Mrozek with the Kiwanis Holiday Lights organization says planning has started for the 2021 event. Mrozek says many in their organizations are coming up with ideas by looking at other displays.

“We don’t have a lot of time to go to other events when we’re running our own event,” said Mrozek. “While we were disappointed we couldn’t have the event this year, we’re excited to make the 2021 event better than ever.”

With city and state guidelines this year, event organizers were forced to cancel the event, which has been held for the past nine holiday seasons at Sibley Park.
