February is Brighter with the North Liberty Lights Display at Liberty Centre
Winter days can be dark, but North Liberty is a bit brighter thanks to North Liberty Lights.
Located around Liberty Centre Pond, the illuminated winter display is lit nightly for the 29 days of February. The exhibit invites spectators to walk under tunnels and take pictures with colorful spring scenes of butterflies, woodland creatures, flowers, deer and more.
North Liberty Lights turns on each night at sundown for North Liberty residents and visitors to enjoy at their leisure for free. Some of the units are animated but the display is not accompanied by music.
Two free City Slate events are scheduled to allow visitors to experience the array of lights in a unique way:
- Ride Around the Lights on Saturday, Feb. 10, 6 to 8 p.m.: Bike carriage rides will depart from the gazebo at the southeast corner of Liberty Centre Pond. Guests will be provided rides on a first come, first served basis. No reservations.
- Sip & Stroll on Thursday, Feb. 22 from 6 to 8 p.m.: Taste free samples of wine, beer and kombucha from Iowa producers.
This is the third year of the winter exhibit, made possible by North Liberty’s Beat the Bitter festival, A2Z Heating & Plumbing, Adam Schechinger State Farm, Archie’s Brake & Quick Lube, Country Financial – Christa Payne and Peg Fraser, Forever Green Landscaping and Sushiya.
