“Lighting The Way” On Harrison Street

By Staff | Dec 17, 2009

The Mexican custom of Luminarias symbolizes “Lighting the way for Christ.”?The custom is to line the sidewalks and/or driveways with paper bags/plastic milk jugs glowing with flickering candles.

Brian and Janis Campbell, 301 Harrison, started doing this on Harrison Street in 1993. The lights extend from First Street to Ninth Street.

“Lighting the way for Christ” is this Sunday, Dec. 20. The display will be lighted at 6:30 p.m. for that one night.

“If everyone on Harrison Street does light their candles, it makes for a beautiful sight,” says Janis Campbell. “We want to thank all the residents on Harrison Street for participating and we hope that this Sunday will be another successful evening of making Harrison Street glow.”

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
