Event Description:

Help transform Pullen Park into a winter wonderland! Hundreds of lights, displays, and garlands go into decorating Pullen Park for the holiday season. Help us spread joy and holiday cheer this season by dressing Pullen Park in its winter finery.

Duties:

Work alone or in small groups to hang wreathes and garlands. Light wrap trees and put net lighting on bushes. Hang light orbs from trees. Setup light tunnels or other path lighting. Some ladder use may be required.

Impact:

It takes almost two months of decorating to create the winter wonderland that local families have come to cherish. By volunteering to help decorate Pullen Park, individuals and groups can bring cheer to families in our communities. Your support can help enhance the magic of the holiday season for kids and their families.

Work Environment:

Work will occur outdoors in November. Please dress appropriately to the weather and wear or bring layers. Work will be equivalent to light yard work or home holiday decorating. Restrooms are available onsite.

Pre-registration is required. Volunteers must be at least 15 years old. All volunteers will need to complete a release form prior to the event. Those under the age of 18 must have a parent/guardian sign their form. Only volunteers 18 years or older may use a ladder and must sign an additional release form.
