Light Up Middletown Continues To Attract

Light Up Middletown, the annual Smith Park non-profit event organized by area volunteers has brought in over 4,000 vehicles with nearly 15,000 people inside them since it began this year on November 23rd. The attraction is open every day from 5:30 to 9:30 P.M. from now through New Year's Eve, regardless of weather or holiday.

Admission to Light Up Middletown is made through donation at the entrance, leaving you open to donate as much or as little as you want to take the drive around the 100-acre park. Some of the features at Light Up Middletown include the entrance, Christmas Tree Lane, a reflecting pool with floating swans, deer leaping over the road, a penguin village, a butterfly forest, and the new 138-foot-long Santa's Workshop display.

Tonight as 5:30 PM area balloonists will congregate at the park for the Middletown Journal Balloon Glow. Entrance to the balloon glow is free. Also open on Fridays and Saturdays in the park will be Santa House, home to Santa Clause and Mrs. Claus. Photo opportunities will be available.
