Light Up the Park
The 5th Year! Chewelah’s Light Up the Park (LUTP) FREE, family event has become a beloved tradition where community comes together for a magical celebration of the fall season.
LUTP’s 2018 goal IS
2,018 carved, lighted pumpkins and double that many people!
2,018 carved pumpkins won’t set a Guinness Record, but would set a Chewelah Record and provide that magical glow in Chewelah City Park on October 27. The park with Chewelah Creek flowing through it, is the perfect setting for games, Fire Dancers, a Stagetime theater presentation, food vendors, a movie, costume parade, Pumpkin Flotilla, pumpkin carving, and Line Dancing. A Zombie Run, begun in the downtown business area, Night at the Museum, and a Sky Lantern finale all occur in or near the park.
The goal of creating ‘walkable displays’ in the downtown business area and residential areas in decorating/lighting displays is a focus this fall. Details on the home decorating contest coming soon on Face book and in newspapers.
Get your pumpkins, create a costume, search Pinterest or other sites to spur ideas for your delightful fall display, plan a carving party and join the community in Lighting Up the Park on October 27.
