Night of Lights
On a Sunday evening in December, our Watts Hospital-Hillandale Neighborhood Association celebrates the Annual Night of Lights! Every year our neighborhood sparkles with thousands of glowing candles. They line our streets and warm our hearts. Neighbors stroll in the crisp winter air; parties and open houses abound. Mark your calendars now – please don’t miss any of the fun! Everything you need will be on sale at the southern end of Oval Park, near the picnic shelter.
Night of Lights 2018
December 16th: Dusk until the candles burn out ~ 11:00 pm (Rain date Wednesday 12/19/18.)
Let’s join together to share in the glow of warming light! This year marks the 33rd anniversary of our neighborhood’s Night of Lights luminaria display. We need 100% participation to make Watts-Hillandale sparkle with lights. Help make your street the brightest in the neighborhood. Everything you need — bags, candles, and sand (it is helpful if you bring a bag or pail to carry your sand home) — will be on sale at the picnic shelter at the south end of Oval Park on Saturday, December 15, and Sunday, December 16, from noon until 5 p.m. Supplies for each luminaria still cost just 50 cents. What a deal! Association members get a bonus luminaria! Not yet a member for 2018-2019? You can easily join or renew at this same time; cost is still $5 per person.
Contact Heather Gudac (919-696-4535) if you’re interested in volunteering to sell luminaries Or just go to the Sign-up Genius site here to choose a day and time.
Our Night of Lights Celebration is not affiliated with or symbolic of any one religion or ideology. We simply want to mark the age old tradition that so many countries and cultures have noted for millennia: that light in the dark of winter can give hope and joy .
