It all starts with an idea for a display. The design is created on paper, then construction costs are figured and a cost is attached to the display.
Option One: Sponsorship of a new display is for a three year period. The initial cost of the display can be paid over the three year period. After the first three years, a maintenance fee is charged each year. A one hundred fifty dollar sign up fee is required for each display.
Option Two: Instead of commissioning a new display, you can sponsor an existing display that has no current sponsor (see the list to the left). A yearly maintenance fee will be charged. A one hundred fifty dollar sign up fee is required for each display.
General Information: All displays remain the property of the Christmas City Walkway of Lights. The City of Marion Parks Department is responsible for display set-up, maintenance and removal of the displays each year.
After the initial three year sponsorship for a new display, display sponsorships are set up on a year to year basis. For more information on how to sponsor a display, call the Marion Parks and Recreation Department at 765-662-9931.
