Mark your calendars for the second annual Night of Lights. During this one evening, historical images and films from the Conservancy’s Archives will once again be projected through storefront windows and onto exterior walls, while neighboring buildings along Germantown Avenue will be illuminated with colored lights.
Following the success of last year’s original concept, Night of Lights will expand with additional projection sites further across Germantown Avenue, and new interactive elements designed to immerse the visitor in the ongoing story of Chestnut Hill. Long-time business owners will become interpreters for the evening, sharing stories and engaging the community about their own history.
Demonstrations by expert artisan stone masons, woodworkers, and metal smiths—many of them descendants of the artisans who built Chestnut Hill—will be featured alongside vintage cars, street musicians, and more.
This street-long spectacular is organized in partnership with the Chestnut Hill Business District. A 7pm opening reception at the Water Tower (Ardleigh Street and Southampton Avenue) will kick off the event with a “Flip the Switch” ceremony to turn on the lights.
