It takes a lot of volunteers to put on this show!

We spend most of November putting up lights and setting out the displays, and then it takes a lot of people to light the candles on the event nights. We would love to have you join us. Some people have even made it a family event to volunteer together. If you might be interested in any of the jobs below, please contact our Volunteer Coordinators at 913.685.3604 or volunteercoordinator@opkansas.org.

We are very grateful for our volunteers, so each one will get a “Skip the Line” voucher at the end of their shift. This voucher will allow the volunteer and their family, coming to view the Luminary Walk on purchased tickets, to use a separate entrance when they arrive. Purchased tickets are required because this is a fund-raiser, after all!

Thank you to First National Bank, Westlake Ace Hardware, and Sarin Energy Solutions for being the presenting sponsors of the 20th Annual Holiday Luminary Walk.
