"Lighting it Up" in Sunset Park

The Friends of Sunset Park are at it again, and that's a really good thing.

If you want to help out with the lights, sing some songs, or get more information about volunteering with Friends of Sunset Park, email

Lighting Up The Park
on Friday, December 19th at 6pm in Sunset Park
enter near the 41st St + 5th Avenue entrance (just up the steps) for a 3-tree progressive lighting event. We will first light the tree by the lower path (near 5th Avenue), continue up the hill and light the tree (mid park- 5/6 Avenues and conclude at the lighting of the tree located in front of the Recreation Center (7th Ave. at 43rd St.). No matter which part of the Park you're near, all will be able to view at least one tree light the night this the Holiday Season.

Please spread the word throughout your respective networks. We will be e-distributing a printable flier in the next few days. All are welcome!!

  • Are you interested in accompanying the crowd in singing holiday tunes (from different countries/various languages)?
  • Would you like to read a brief poem/sing/play solo?
  • Would you be able to help hang the lights a couple of days before the 19th?
  • Do you have outdoor-quality white or multi-color lights that you'd like to give-away?
Email if you are interested in responding, making suggestions, or want more information about participating.
