Hellertown residents are preparing to celebrate another holiday season, and the local Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the borough and local business sponsors is organizing another memorable Black Friday kickoff event that will also bring the community together.
When is Light Up Night 2022?
The annual Light Up Night in the borough’s Dimmick Park (located at 570 Durham Street in Hellertown) will be held Friday, Nov. 25 from 4 to 8 p.m., and those four hours will be chock full of fun activities, according to a chamber graphic created for the event.
On tap for Light Up Night are the official borough tree-lighting ceremony along with Santa’s arrival on a fire truck for photos with his many admirers, plus kids’ activities, live entertainment and musical performances, hot cocoa and cookies, food trucks, adult beverages available for purchase, a holiday craft market called Vendor Alley next door at Dewey Fire Co., live reindeer, an ice carving demonstration, hay wagon and pony rides (available for a cash fee) and roaming characters such as Elsa and Olaf from Disney’s Frozen and the Grinch. There will also be giveaways and specials, along with a December shopping booklet containing coupons from local businesses.
The day after Light Up Night is Small Business Saturday, when some local businesses will be hosting special sales and other events, and Light Up Night attendees will be reminded and encouraged to shop local not just on Nov. 26, but all year round.
In past years, Light Up Night has drawn thousands of visitors to Dimmick Park, which will be festively decorated and where the event’s focal point will be the bandshell stage.
