The only place you can buy a legitimate ticket is on the event's official website.

The tickets cost $5 each which gets you one hour of time in the park.  The money raised is going toward the St. Cloud Christian School and their plan to renovate Spalt Park.

Selling advance tickets also allows organizers to control the size of the crowd for each hour.

The St. Cloud Lights Festival runs December 1st through December 10th at Spalt Park in Northeast St. Cloud.
