For the second year, the intersection of 3rd Avenue and Centre Street, had Drumheller residents gather to take in free entertainment and refreshments put on by the town, local merchants and volunteer groups.
"There's so many people involved to make that happen," stated Colberg. "From the Town, the Chamber, FCSS, downtown merchants, volunteers, there were people from every walk of life that got involved and stepped up and helped to make this happen."
"I went in and out of some of the merchants' stores and I think everybody, for the large part of them that were open, definitely had some good revenues and, if not the revenues, they had people in there that'll be back.."
Ironically, the one thing that definitely did not go according to plan, other than the cold temperatures, was the centrepiece of the evening.
"Our only mishap was our little elf didn't turn the (tree) lights on," she lamented. "What happened, I think, was that last year we had Charlie Brown's Christmas tree and this year we went triple the lights and...the breaker went."
Fortunately, the tree lights came back on after a few minutes and people were able to bask in their glow until the fireworks capped the night off a little after 8:00 p.m.
Colberg noted anything can happen, but she's pretty confident in stating there will be another downtown Festival of Lights in Drumheller again next winter.
