Rick’s Gift: Spreading Light and Love to Our Community
In honor of our friend, Rick Dickerson. 
We lost a special member of the Winter Magic team last season to health issues.  Rick was one of the two cheerful faces that greeted guests at the ticket booth.  He loved meeting the folks in the neighborhood and making new friends.  What Rick declared as most delightful, was getting to see all of the children’s smiling faces as they approached the lights.  In honor of him, we are offering the neighborhoods that border the light show a free entry on our opening night.  On Thurs., Nov. 2nd from 7-9pm, we are gifting FREE ADMISSION for the following neighborhoods in Northeast:

  • Pendleton Heights
  • Scarritt Renaissance
  • Indian Mound
  • Columbus Park
  • Independence Plaza
  • Lykins
  • Sheffield
