People of Ymir’s Tiny Lights Festival

We met some of the people who came out for the fifth annual three-day extravaganza.

Tiny Lights staff had plenty of balls in the air during this weekend's festival. Parking lot sheriff Bryce Beckett was one of the many volunteers making the annual Ymir event possible.

The fifth annual Tiny Lights Festival attracted hundreds of people to Ymir this past weekend, with musical showcases and community events being offered at seven different venues during the three-day extravaganza.

As part of the Star‘s coverage of this weekend’s festivities, we met some of the people who came out to Tiny Lights.
