Light Up Night

Celebrate the season with a night full of cheer at Saltsburg's Annual Light Up Night. Canal Park and the surrounding streets will be lined with over 80 trees, being decorated by local families, businesses and students. The Saltsburg Elementary School Chorus will sing and Santa and the Grinch will visit with the children. Join us for free crafts and raffles, free hot chocolate and cookies, and much more! Remember to purchase your luminary for a loved one. Luminaries will be lit at 6:15 by the River's Edge stage. 

Everyone is invited to decorate our trees. Trees for the event are $30 each and come with either white or multi-color lights.  Luminaries are $5 per name and includes a luminary bag and a bulb on our Memorial Trees. Luminaries will be limited to 125, so call early. Start a new tradition or create a memorial tree for a loved one. 

To buy a tree for your family or business to decorate, to sponsor a tree, or to purchase a luminary, please call Michelle 724-639-3728.
