Holiday lights are set to turn on across the region – and that means work.
In Marshall, Texas, throngs of volunteers are putting on the 28th annual Wonderland of Lights.
The festival features more than 150,000 lights outlining the historic Harrison County Courthouse. Even more are strung throughout the square in downtown Marshall. Lisa Agnor, the city’s finance director and chairwoman of the event, said the city chipped in $50,000 to cover the cost of the 36-day festival.
