Country Lights Festival
November 27, 2017
It’s that time of year! The holidays are among us and The Country Lights Festival is the place to go. This year Country Financial is starting the first annual Country Lights Festival. The event will start December 2nd and continue through December 31st. Country Lights Festival will be located at Lake Francis in Sartell, which is located next to the new community center.

The inspiration for this event started with Chip Schwarzentraub, the manager of the Sartell Country Financial location and Leah McGuire, the office manager. “Our vision originally was Bentleyville. But we also think we don’t compete with them so we want to have our own style and our own vision,” Schwarzentraub exclaimed during the interview. Bentleyville is a light festival in Duluth, MN that has been an annual event since 2001. “We want to give back to the community and bring a lot of area business together and let local families enjoy the holiday season,” said Schwarzentraub. The Country Lights Festival will also have special festivities offered on Saturdays like hot chocolate, a meet and greet with Santa Claus, and fire pits to warm up at. The lights will be on every weekday starting when it gets dark and will be on until 9:00pm.
