Because of recent success of the Hay Bale Trail held in the fall, the Logan County Tourist & Convention Commission proudly presents the first annual Trail of Christmas Lights Around Logan County.

“So much excitement surrounded the Hay Bale Trail in our community over the last two years. This holiday event is just another way to show those who live and visit Logan County that we have a lot to offer,” said Dee Dee Brown, Executive Director of Logan County Tourism.

Brown added that the Hay Bale and Christmas Lights Trails help bring people out to see the beautiful areas of Logan County. Both those who live here and those who visit.

“We hope for continued support for the Trail Christmas Lights event,” said Brown. “Tourism is always looking for ways to promote Logan County and all of its rich history and friendly citizens.”
