Oglebay Festival of Lights Idea Contest Winners Announced

When the 30th anniversary of the Winter Festival of Lights begins on November 13, 2015, there will be a new display on Schenk Lake featuring Penguins. “This year there were two Penguin light display ideas submitted for the New Idea Contest so we decided to have two winners,” said Andy Barger, Director of Planning for the Wheeling Park Commission and Chairman of the Oglebay Festival of Lights Committee.


Logan Prince from Wheeling, and Victoria Grunenwald from Marysville, Oh, will both receive a $50 Oglebay gift card and a one-year family membership to the Good Zoo as winners of the contest.


“We are looking forward to adding the Penguin display to the Festival of Lights and we thank everyone that participated in the contest,” added Barger. “


The top ten entries will be displayed at Wilson Lodge through March 15, 2015 and all entries receive one free admission to the Good Zoo.
