Mary’s Light Tunnel

Now thru Feb/MOORHEAD – At the Viking Ship Park behind the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead and features 50,000 lights that bring joy to visitors looking for a winterscape photo opportunity. The Tunnel is named in honor of the city of Moorhead employee Mary Schmitt who passed away in November 2020 at 54. The lights for the Tunnel came from Moorhead City Manager Dan Mahli, who acquired the lights after hearing that they would no longer be used to adorn trees in downtown Fargo. Mahli stored the lights in his garage until they could be displayed in what is now a family-fun 60-foot canopy that lights up the night from dusk ’til dawn.
