Perfect late-November weather and a slate full of fun, family-friendly activities made the perfect combination for a record turnout to the seventh annual Diamond Lights Festival on Saturday, Nov. 30, at the Diamond Trail Golf Course in Lynnville.
Attendees of the festival enjoyed warm soup and goodies inside the clubhouse, the sweet sound of children singing Christmas carols, tours of festive lighted displays created by area businesses and organizations around the golf course, a chance to visit with jolly St. Nick, and much more. The “Light the Night Glo Run” was held for the first time this year. Approximately 30 runners and walkers of all ages braved the dark, hilly course with the only light coming from their complimentary glo necklaces or flashlights, if participants had the foresight to bring one. David Arabis of Florida, brother to Elizabeth Van Wyk of Sully, claimed first place in the inaugural two-mile race.
