Don’t miss one of the holiday season’s most inspiring events.
Each year the Festival of Lights brings the true spirit of the season to young and old alike. Holiday greetings, carols and an inspirational message are all part of this community tradition-based event that highlights the true meaning of the holiday season. Attendees join in the program with a moving candle lighting ceremony, filling the courtyard with magnificent light.
Over 30 years ago by Julia Hanna was concerned that the world was losing sight of the real meaning of holiday season. She encouraged area residents to display single white candles in their windows to bring back the feeling of an old-fashioned holidays and focus on the warmth and fellowship of the season. She encouraged community togetherness… and the candlelight festival was begun. Since that time, the tradition has evolved into this ecumenical gathering.
