May 20th ‘Lights On North Park’ A Celebration Of The Neighborhood’s Local Business

North Park Main Street invites the local community to join in for ‘Lights on North Park’, a visual gesture of unity and support for the neighborhood’s 1,000 restaurant, retail, entertainment and service-oriented businesses, after a time of unprecedented challenges.

North Park business owners, community members, and visitors alike are welcome to participate in the high-energy sunset ceremony, by briefly lighting up the cross-section of “30th and University” (just steps from the iconic North Park sign) with the soft glow of raised cell phone lights. Ribbons will also be handed out, to be held as a symbol of the North Park community’s solidarity with local businesses. More than one hundred participants are expected, culminating in a dynamic display of lights.

All are welcome!

The more the merrier!

The evening will also feature local visual collage artist, Steve Haney, of Vision Collage Art and live music courtesy of DJ Beau Lamontagne aka Monsieur Turbeau.

Participants are encouraged to make it a night out in North Park— before the happening, stroll the weekly North Park Farmers’ Market (3 to 7:30PM) to shop for organic produce from local farms, artisan foods, and handmade products. And linger afterward to enjoy the many dine and drink options.
