The light display closed for the season Tuesday night with its annual fireworks show. Nathan Bentley said it was a good year. 

"We had good weather up until the last couple of days," he said, "And high attendance, lots of kids to see Santa."

In fact, Santa gave out 23,000 hats. That's up from the 15,000 he doled out in 2016. 

"We're showing a little over 330,000 people," Bentley said. "Our hot chocolate was up to 14,000 pounds of hot chocolate. So busy year."

Now, he said they need some of those folks who enjoyed the hot chocolate and free activities to share in the work. 

"We need people to come down here. No skill level to snip zip ties, wrap up extension cords," Bentley said. "We have inside jobs, we have outside jobs. They're no-brainer jobs."

Volunteers can show up to Bayfront Park between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. through Sunday.
