Did you know that The 712 Initiative is hosting the first-ever Winterfest Holiday Lights Tour? This year they are putting together a safe and fun way for locals to enjoy the holiday season since large community celebrations have been canceled due to COVID-19. The 712 Initiative will be creating a map that includes the best holiday decorations for community members to use. This is a self-guided activity that you can enjoy from the warmth of your vehicle!

Council Bluffs residents are invited to decorate the exterior of their homes with the best holiday lights and add their address to the Holiday Lights Tour list. To enter your home, simply fill out the registration form by Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Decorating your home and adding it to the list is a great way to spread holiday cheer to your neighbors and community members!

On December 8, 2020, the official Winterfest Holiday Lights Tour map will be posted on Facebook for everyone to enjoy. This awesome event is the result of a partnership between The 712 Initiative and The City of Council Bluffs and it would not have been possible without the support of the presenting sponsor, Centris FCU.
