Hope Valley Night of Lights - Sunday, December 14th

This Holiday Season Hope Valley will once again be alight with Luminaries!  HVNA is sponsoring the Hope Valley Night of Lights Sunday, December 14th.  We’ll be kicking off the evening with a Cookies and Cider Party for all neighborhood residents at the Hope Valley Country Club north parking lot from 3:00-4:30pm.  All are welcome!

To Participate: Order your kits by December 8th through one of our preferred vendors listed below.

We suggest one luminary every 4 to 5 feet along the street frontage of your home.  You can assemble your own kit using #8 or #10 white paper bags and votive candles with at least a 4 hour burn time.  HVNA encourages block or street groups to join together and place bulk orders and to work together to ensure your block is beautifully lit!  Place and light luminaries at 5:30pm Sunday, December 14th and enjoy your beautiful neighborhood!
