Lynnwood Lights canceled due to budget cuts

The city’s Parks and Recreation staff are getting a lot of calls lately from residents asking about Lynnwood Lights. The annual celebration is usually held the first week of December.

It was decided earlier this year to cancel this year’s event due to budget cuts. It’s unclear how much the move will save, but a budget memo presented to the City Council in 2008 showed that year’s event cost about $15,000.

Previous Lynnwood Lights have included live entertainment, magic acts, carolers, crafts, photos with Santa and a tree lighting ceremony.
