Dec 21 @ 5:00 pm – 5:30 pm

Join your friends and neighbors for the 3rd Annual Light Up the Night for Barrington luminary event to celebrate the Winter Solstice, create a glowing sense of community throughout Barrington, and support the arts, music and culture programs at the Bay Spring Community Center.

As part of its annual fundraiser, the Friends of the Bay Spring Community Center will be selling luminaries in the weeks leading up to the Winter Solstice. Households will then light up the night with luminaries lining driveways, yards, porches, and more in a simple, beautiful display of community unity.

Luminary kits cost $10 and include materials for 5 luminaries. You can place your orders at upcoming Bay Spring Community Center events, online via the button below, and through neighborhood captains.
