In the Old Northside we are known for many things, but one we love to share is that of community. To keep spirits high and bring a little holiday light into the fast approaching winter season, we are looking to begin a new holiday tradition. A Winter Light in the Old Northside. Many people that live in our neighborhood love donning their homes and yards with holiday lights to bring joy to all during a gray Indiana season. To help encourage all our neighbors, we would like to make a holiday competition. On the evening of December 11th, we invite members of our community to take part in the lighting of the Old Northside.

For an additional sensory experience, this year we have worked with our local partners at Primrose Candle Co. to create an Old Northside exclusive winter candle. You may order it by itself or as a gift with your donation to the Old Northsides' A WINTER LIGHT event. Proceeds from the sales of the candle also go to the "a Winter light" event cause below.

The cause

The Old Northside Neighborhood parks, Shawn Grove and Great Oak Commons, require $27,000 to maintain each year. Because of you, our community is able to enjoy these beautiful parks. Our goal is to raise $3000 - $5000 through A WINTER LIGHT with your generous support.

Rules of the Competition

The competition will be held for those living in the Old Northside to compete in. After you register to compete there are no restrictions on your submission other than it must help to light the neighborhood. This could mean that you plan to have all of your lights on in your house, or you line your sidewalk with luminaries, or you have a blowup snowman. Registrants will be added to a virtual map and as submissions are entered they will be added to an online gallery and to the location highlight on the virtual map. To have your entry voted on, all registrants must submit a photo to awinterlight@oldnorthside.org by December 9th.  

Anyone can vote, whether they live in the neighborhood or not, and voting will commence online December 11th and will conclude December 18th. For those who need a little help with decorations, our Old Northside team has created luminary kits that you can purchase with registration.
