TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - There were long lines to get into the final night of the 66th Annual Festival of Lights in Winterhaven Saturday.

Being the last night, it was drive-through night allowing cars to cruise Winterhaven streets letting people get one last look at the lights.

The festival also helps raise money for the Community Food Bank. Volunteers say most of those entering the neighborhood Saturday were donating.

"I would day about 80 to 85 percent of the people driving by are donating, it might be one dollar bill, cans of food, change in their pocket, but we've gotten a lot of money," said Dory Martin, a volunteer.

Before Christmas, the had received about 35,000 pounds of food and were hoping for another 10,000 in the last two nights of the festival.
