Last Friday, before the Tunnel of Lights was switched on and a bus full of kids from the Concord Boys and Girls club was the first group to come through, Aaron Fansler and Jason Mills scaled the giraffes to check for broken bulbs. The men were making sure that all the lights were ready to go for the New Hampshire Motor Speedway’s Gift of Lights. The display is more than two miles of holiday scenes and over 400 light displays. The event, which just kicked off last Friday, is open nightly from 4:30 to 9 pm through January 5.
