Light the Night is a community-wide light parade and holiday programming that Epicenter helped start in 2015. The light parade, which never disappoints, features locally designed, decorated, and driven creations starts at 7 pm and runs from east to west on Main Street. Programming, typically showcasing local singers and dancers, is held shortly after in the recreational building at the corner of Pearl and Main streets, next to the Green River Bible Church. Light (often warm and sweet) refreshments are served during the program. Hundreds are always in attendance and this is not an event to be missed!
