WHEELING, W.Va. — The magic of the Christmas season was captured Thursday evening by a petite young third-grader and a box of crayons.
Lakin Chambers, a student at Woodsdale Elementary School, created a new birthday-themed light display for Oglebay’s 90th anniversary and the park’s Winter Festival of Lights. Her rendition of a giant birthday cake with fireworks is now on display at Oglebay’s Speidel Golf Course as part of the 33rd annual Winter Festival of Lights.
Chambers had the honor of flipping the switch to officially kick off the festival, which runs nightly through Jan. 1. She was joined by park commission members and other special guests. With nearly 100 displays and 1 million lights, the show extends across the rolling 300 acre-landscape of Wheeling’s gem of a park.
