The Denton Holiday Lighting Festival is run entirely on donations. Many people believe the event is put on by the city, which is not the case. The event is put on entirely by the DHLFA and is funded completely by donations. The city of Denton does provide a generous donation every year but it is not enough to put on the event. Your annual donations at the event, through our website and through the mail are what keep this event possible. Thank you for your continued support and Merry Christmas!
