Light Up River
Light Up River is just around the corner and the Rocky River Beautification Committee has kits ready for you! Sunday, December 20, is the evening that people around Rocky River will set out luminarias and enjoy the soft glow of light as they walk around their neighborhood or take a leisurely drive.
This is the fifth year for the event and it continues to expand. It usually starts with a few houses on a street and grows as neighbors see how peaceful and picturesque it is. Eventually entire streets are glowing, as Eriewood Dr. and Prospect Ave. did last year.
This could be the first year for your street – you could be the leader! So get a kit and say “Yes!” when people ask if you are participating. Then grab some hot chocolate and chat with neighbors as you enjoy a few moments of downtime during the holidays.
Kits consist of white bags and candles, and are available to order until December 11 at www.rrcity.com/beautification-committee/. Kits are $10 for a set of 10 (suitable for most homes), or $30 for a set of 35 (helpful if you have a corner lot). They will also be sold at a variety of Rocky River holiday events. Proceeds from the event fund projects like the refurbished stone wing walls at the corner of Erie Rd.and Detroit Rd., the croquet-style bike rack at the Civic Center, and more!
Please join us!
Liz Harmath is the Chair of the Rocky River Beautification Committee.
