The Winter Solstice is the shortest day and the longest night of the year, marking the beginning of the coming winter. Traditionally, it is a day for reflection where people spend time with family and friends. This year, grab your flashlights, lanterns, or other creative, custom-designed and non-combustible light source and join us for a Winter Solstice Parade of Lights celebration as we “light up” the historic Pennsy Trail near Irvington. This is an informal 1.25 mile walk and will begin near Kittley Avenue (behind the old Marsh Plaza). Participants can start at the beginning or join us in progress along one of the trail’s many access points. The parade route will follow the Pennsy Trail east to Ritter Avenue, then north to Washington Street to Irvington where participants can partake in seasonal specials with local merchants. Join us for a celebration of the season, warm lights, and warm treats as we celebrate the Winter Solstice on the Pennsy Trail.
