Extreme Team "Making Spirits Bright" project decorates nearby park

Extreme Team "Making Spirits Bright"...

SPOKANE, Wash. - Mark Peterson and the KXLY Four Extreme Team are working hard once again to brighten the spirits of kids who have to spend their holidays away from home.

On Wednesday, twelve thousand dollars worth of lights will turn Cowley Park in to the North Pole for patients to enjoy from above.

Sunday, volunteers from Spokane Winter Glow were busy setting up the light displays complete with dozens of Christmas trees and a gingerbread house. 

The displays may look familiar to some. For two years, they were set up in Riverfront Park for families to enjoy during the holiday season. When construction started last year, they moved to the Fairgrounds.

The group of volunteers say they started the program for children and moving to Sacred Heart Children's Hopsital has been a natural fit.

Winter Glow's Ed Miller says,”that's always been our plan bu this year being with the hospital is extra special.”

The hardest part for the organization has been transporting all the displays to the park. Next up for them is setting up an animal zoo and train car made of lights.

The lighting will take place on Wednesday, November 22 at 6:30pm. KXLY 4 News will have live coverage beginning at 6pm.
