Light The Night at Ginegaw Park

Light The Night At Ginegaw Park

It was a chilly evening but everyone kept warm with holiday fun and cheer during our 7th Annual Light the Night in Ginegaw Park this past Saturday. Thanks to all those who bundled up to come out and vote for their favorite tree and enjoy our holiday festivities!

A special thank you to the Walworth Fire Police for assisting us with parking. With all the snow this year it made for a much more difficult parking scenario. Without their help things certainly wouldn’t have fun as smooth.

We’d also like to thank West Walworth FD for once again bringing our special guest to his “North Pole” for the evening. It’s always a fun entrance for the big guy with all the lights!

You may have noticed our favorite market baker Evelyn Seaman when getting your hot cocoa and cookie in the lodge. Not only did Evelyn make the incredible gingerbread house the Friends of the Park raffled off but she also make all of our cookies for us this year. We can’t thank her enough for her support!

Thank you to the Walworth Library for providing a craft in the Lodge and helping out as a special elf for Santa! We love having them team up with us each year to bring you all of our holiday fun!

We’d also like to say thanks to Altra Rental for donating the portable light towers to assist with bringing a little more light to the park and where individuals are walking to and from cars during the evening. They’re continued support of the event is much appreciated!

Our trees as always were fantastic. We’re so lucky to not only have so many wonderful organizations and businesses want to be a part of our event but for how creative and festive they decorate each year. It’s something the community always looks forward too and our tree decorations never disappoint.

Lastly a HUGE thank you to everyone who came out to support our event. On a busy night and with some less than desirable weather we still enjoyed a great turnout!

We hope everyone has a fantastic and safe holiday season and that our night brought a little extra joy to you and your family!
