A beloved holiday display was sunk just one day before its biggest weekend of the year.
The lights went dim on Spokane's Winter Glow Spectacular last night, when a water main broke near the show's main attraction.
"So it was urgent. We wanted the zoo back open tonight because people love the animal zoo. Kids in Spokane really like seeing all the animals," says Winter Glow's Courtney Schmidt.
Winter Glow has over 30 displays, but the light zoo is the shining star on top of the tree. Last night organizers weren't sure if they would have to chop the whole thing down.
"We do know that we do have a few of our connectors, electrical connectors, that are actually sitting in water right now," said organizer Jerry Schmidt.
So workers showed up at 6:30 this morning and began relocating the zoo.
"We just started taking things down and doing what we could in advance of the park employees showing up to actually help us with some of the heavy work," says Schmidt's partner Phil Robinson.
In twelve hours, the group moved the entire display. Every light worked perfectly.
