Hellertown-Lower Saucon Kick Off the Holiday Season at Light Up Night!

The Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber of Commerce, a proud partner of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce, and Mobile Technology Graphics are honored to present the 2023 Light Up Night on Friday, November 24th from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM in the Morris J. Dimmick Park.

Join 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 excited for the 2023 Hellertown-Lower Saucon Light Up Night!” said Jessica O’Donnell-Gower, Executive Vice President of Affiliated Chambers, and the Northern Tier for the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. “This event and the participation have grown year after year. We’re bringing back our crowd favorites and adding a few twists to keep it fresh. The Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber Board and our Chamber team look forward to welcoming everyone back to Morris J. Dimmick Park for a spectacular night. This is the ultimate kick-off to the holiday season and a great way to ignite your 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 non-profits and businesses, as well as cash wagon rides that will be ongoing throughout the evening and cash pony rides, this year, too!

Hellertown-Lower Saucon Chamber Vice Chair, Brandon Wimbish, owner of Farmers Insurance on Main St. and proud sponsor of Light Up Night’s, is very excited to be a part of the event. “We are really looking forward to Light Up Night,” Wimbish continued, “it is a great time for families to come out and start getting into the holiday spirit. Make sure to stop by the Reindeer!”

In addition, free hot chocolate, coffee, cider, and cookies will be available for attendees; a holiday craft market called Vendor Alley will feature local vendors. Food will be available outdoors from Hausman Fruit Farm, Cosmic Kettle Corn, Big Poppa’s Backyard BBQ, RK Mobile Foods, and Why Not Burgerz. Adult beverages will be for sale by Lost Tavern Brewing, Easton Wine Project, and well as Five Maidens Cidery (with 15% of all their proceeds benefiting our community).
