19th Ward Luminaries
Luminaries in front of 374 Wellington Ave last year

For the past few years the 19th Ward has celebrated Dr. Martin Luther King’s birthday in a public manner and will be doing so again this year. On Monday, January 17 there will be luminaries throughout the area. The luminaries themselves are small paper bags weighted down with sand or kitty litter and containing a votive candle. Luminary Kits are available at Menezes Pizza – 445 Chili Ave (open from 12-6 pm), Hunt’s Hardware – 390 Thurston Road, and Boulder Coffee – 955 Genesee St,
or make your own.

Neighbors make a number of luminaries and set them at the sidewalk edge of their tree lawn from sunset until 9 pm. Some people host warming fires and a hot chocolate stands. This is also a community building event.

If you have questions, please call the 19th Ward Community Association’s office 328-6571.
