The Downtown Vernon Association wants to make this year’s Light Up the busiest one yet packed with things for families to do, but they need your help.

“Planning for the next annual Downtown Vernon Light Up starts as soon as we are taking down the ornaments and sweeping up the pine needles” said Hailey Rilkoff, Events Coordinator for the Downtown Vernon Association.

This year the Light Up takes place on Saturday, Nov. 26 and all of Vernon is invited to participate.

“The Light Up is truly all of Vernon’s Christmas event” said Rilkoff. “So we would like to have everyone in the community participate! We are calling out to anyone that has a great idea or activity they would like to host to let us know! We want a fun and festive event with a full street.”

In addition to the activities hosted by downtown merchants the DVA requires entertainers, choirs, activity hosts, and volunteers to make the Light Up a success.

“Without business and community support events like these can’t take place, so we really look forward to hearing from people that have great ideas and want to take part!”
