En­chanted For­est drew more vis­i­tors this sea­son

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - CITY+REGION -

The En­chanted For­est’s or­ga­niz­ers say this win­ter’s Hol­i­day Light Tour drew more at­ten­dees than it has be­fore.

Or­ga­niz­ers at­tribute the at­ten­dance of 80,520 — a new record — to good weather and other fac­tors.

The pre­vi­ous year’s tour drew what was then a record 77,000 peo­ple.

Pro­ceeds from the Blue Cross Light Walk, which had nearly 9,000 vis­i­tors, will go to the Saska­toon Zoo Foun­da­tion and the Saska­toon City Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion.

En­chanted For­est or­ga­niz­ers said they ex­pect the walk raised more than last year’s to­tal of $250,000, but the fi­nal tally has yet to be de­ter­mined.

This year, the En­chanted For­est marked its 20th an­niver­sary.

Or­ga­niz­ers are al­ready dis­cussing plans for the next Hol­i­day Light Tour, which will open Novem­ber 16.
