Stettler’s Town and Country museum drawing crowds for ‘Light the Night’

Around 100 vehicles per night are going through the displays

Kicking off Dec. 3, 2021, a Stettler tradition has been met with great support.

The ‘Light the Night’ Christmas light displays at the Stettler Town and Country Museum have been drawing an average of 100 vehicles per night, according to manager Karen Wahlund.

While there is no cost to view the lights, cash donations are being accepted by the museum and the event is being held as a museum fundraiser.

There is a variety of light displays on the grounds put up by various businesses, groups, and families.

“The light displays are fantastic this year … (and) have done very well,” wrote Wahlund, in an email release.

All has not been easy on the grounds, however.

According to Wahlund, wind has provided a “challenge” to some of the displays but, “these groups and museum staff are keeping up.”

Anyone viewing the lights are invited to head over to www.stettlerlocal.com and vote for their favorite display, as the museum gives out a ‘People’s Choice’ award to the display with the most votes every year.

To view the outside displays, people are invited to either drive through with their own vehicle, walk through, or take a wagon ride through the displays courtesy of the Stettler Antique Tractor Club.

Not all the displays are on the grounds though.

Inside the museum proper, from 6 to 8 p.m., is the gingerbread-house display.

In the museum, people will also be able to warm-up, grab a hot chocolate, and vote for their favorite gingerbread house.

All funds raised for voting in the gingerbread display go to Animal Haven.

The final nights for the event will be from Dec. 21 to Dec. 24.
