Trail of Lights Volunteers assist with all aspects of the event, including serving as Trail Guides, Trail Ambassadors, and part of our interactive displays. Volunteers will provide information and direction to attendees, and help make this event fun and festive for all! Members of this team are the public face of the Trail of Lights and should bring lots of energy, a good sense of humor and willingness to interact with Trail attendees.
Volunteers should arrive 15 minutes prior to their shift start, bring lots of energy, a good sense of humor and be ready to work. Volunteers should expect to be outdoors for duration of shift and should wear weather-appropriate clothing (gloves, scarf, rain gear etc.,). Volunteers may bring a chair (for some positions) and flashlight if desired.
|Perks||On the day of their service, volunteers will receive a free Trail of Lights T-shirt and access to a volunteer tent with refreshments, including dinner provided by Rudy's BBQ. As a token of our thanks, a complementary ZiP Fast Pass for an alternate day will also be given for Volunteers to enjoy the Trail at their leisure. |
*The ZiP Fast Pass will permit early entry one hour before the general public at a private ZiP entrance for expedited entry, in addition to the VIP style ZiP lounge with seating, heat, and private restrooms.
|Parking Details||Close-in volunteer parking will be provided. Maps to follow 4 days prior to your volunteer shift.|
