Please come to help construct and distribute our annual lumineria. These candle-filled bags line the street and send out a magical glow on Christmas Eve. Here’s how the magic happens:
- At 1 p.m., we meet at the home of a neighbour to assemble the lumineria. This involves putting sand into paper bags and putting candle into the sand. This year, the party will be hosted by Jim and Kelley Martin’s House, 3775 Washington St.
- At dusk, you can go out on the street in front of your house and light the candles.
- Its a great traditional to walk around the neighborhood after the lumineria are lit. You can also go across the Trafficway because our neighbors in Roanoke are also part of the tradition.
