Light Up the Park

November 20, 2018, 6:30 pm


Get in the holiday spirit as we “Light Up The Park” at our annual tree lighting ceremony. Join Mrs. Claus, Prairie Jr. High Band and Choir and our preschool class as we celebrate the upcoming holiday season. Families are encouraged to take part in Family Ornament Night on November 12 since those ornaments are used to decorate the huge evergreen tree out front. After the outdoor oooh-ing and ahhh-ing at the lit tree, we will head into the warm gymnasium for carols, cookies, and cocoa. No registration needed for this event. Be on time to experience the magic of Lighting up the Park at the Alsip Park District!
Age: All, under 18 must be accompanied by an adult
