The Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber of Commerce, a proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, and Mobile Technology Graphics are proud to present the 2021 Light Up Night on Friday, November 26th from 5:00 PM – 9:00 PM in the Morris J. Dimmick Park.

Join them for a fun-filled evening as they kick off the holiday season with what is shaping up to be their biggest holiday celebration yet! “We could not be more thrilled with how this event is turning out!”, said Jessica O’Donnell, Executive Vice President of Affiliated Chambers and the Northern Tier for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. “The amount it has grown over the last few years is truly incredible. We’ve brought back some community favorites from year’s past while also elevating the event with initiatives we learned from our efforts in 2020. Lauren and I, as well as the Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber Board, look forward to welcoming everyone back to Morris J. Dimmick Park for a spectacular night. If you are there, which we hope you are, you will definitely be feeling the holiday spirit!”

The evening is jam-packed with family activities for people of all ages! Live reindeer will be back at this year’s event along with an ice carving demonstration and holiday characters. Children’s activities will be available with local nonprofits and businesses, as well as cash wagon rides that will be ongoing throughout the evening. In addition, free hot chocolate, coffee, cider, apples, and cookies will be available for attendees! A holiday craft market will be hosted in Dewey Fire Company’s Social Hall, Frontline at the Dewey, featuring local vendors. Food will be available from Chefmeals LLC, Cone Appetit, Cosmic Kettle Corn, Ridge Runner BBQ, RK Mobile Foods, The Angry Chourico, and Why Not Burgerz (with 10% of proceeds benefitting our community). A cash adult beverage bar will be hosted by Lost Tavern Brewing and Black River Farms Vineyard and Winery (with 10% of proceeds benefiting our community). The Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber will also be handing out 500 Holiday Shopping Booklets with coupons from local businesses, as they encourage people to #shoplocal for the holiday season.

Entertainment will begin in Morris J. Dimmick Park at 5:00 PM. For a full list of performers, view the schedule below. The Tree Lighting will commence with Santa’s arrival at 7:00 PM, followed by pictures with Santa and a special giveaway for each child at 7:10 PM.

Zac Estojak, Operations Director of Mobile Technology Graphics, said, “We are excited to help bring the HLS Light Up Night back to an in-person event this year after a successful and mindful COVID-19 adaptation in 2020. With all our lives going by a million miles a minute, we think it’s important for events like this to happen to allow us to come together as a community and slow down to appreciate all we have to offer.”

Kim Rosario, Chair of the Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber’s Board, commented, “As the holidays draw near and our signature event, Light Up Night, approaches, we would like to extend a special thanks to our committee, volunteers, and sponsors for their continued dedication throughout the year. This event has so many moving parts and it would not be possible without them. We can’t wait to see you at Light Up Night so that you can enjoy everything this spectacular evening has to offer! If you’re not there, “yule” be missed! Don’t forget that Small Business Saturday is the following day, November 27th. If you’re looking to spruce up your holiday wish list, we encourage you to buy local and shop small from any of our wonderful Hellertown-Lower Saucon merchants.
