ROSEBURG, Ore. - The holiday season is kicking off in Douglas County with the 25th anniversary of the Umpqua Valley Festival of Lights.
The festival's founder and chairperson, Kerwin Doughton, said this event is an important tradition for the Roseburg community. He's now met people who attended the festival as a child themselves and now bring their own children every year.
It takes place at River Fork Park just outside of Roseburg. It features wagon rides, the world's largest nutcracker, and, of course, lights.
This year the festival is teaming up with Walt Disney to bring in two lighted displays that will be characters from the Disney movie, Frozen.
Doughton said the key to an event like this is to always be improving and innovating.
”We’re excited, we’ve got new innovations, and believe it or not we’ve added new displays every year we’ve been out here.”
The festival begins Sunday, November 19. Drive throughs are $10 per car and wagon rides are $5 per person.
