The City of Oakwood and the Oakwood Environmental Committee are “lighting up” Oakwood on Sunday, December 12th beginning at 6:00 P.M. Luminarias will line the boulevards on Far Hills Avenue and Shafor Boulevard as well as the City Building, Community Center, Smith Gardens, Huffman, Shafor, Orchardly and Fairridge Parks and other areas around the city. The Committee encourages neighborhood participation and hopes to see more blocks putting out luminarias this year.
Luminarias for this community event will be sold at the Oakwood Community Center beginning Monday, November 8th. Luminarias are sold by the dozen. The price ($5.00) includes the white bags, sand and 10-hour burning candles. Please bring a bucket or box to carry your sand.
