It was a busy night at Morris Park, as hundreds of people in cars came to see the "Celebration of Lights" display.

Volunteers with the South Fairmont Rotary Club said the show offers more than 200 displays from a variety of sponsors. Each car paid $5 to drive through the park.

"We have been hard at this for five years and getting bigger every year. We have 200+ displays this year, and all the proceeds go towards the United Way of Marion County," said volunteer Aaron Hawkins.

The fun will continue on Monday with a walk through the park for dogs and their owners.

Fans can also come out on Christmas Eve, Friday, and Saturday. It wraps up next Sunday.
