The Summit will usher in holiday spirit at its signature holiday event “Lights Up” on Friday, Nov. 18 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on The Terrace. The annual event is free to attend and attracts families from all over Louisville. The North Oldham Little League All Star team has been selected for the honor of turning on The Summit’s holiday lights and kicking off the fireworks show. The team represented the region at the 65th Little League World Series this past summer. Beginning at 6:30 p.m., Northeast Christian Church will provide live music entertainment with a concert including contemporary takes on holiday music classics. Santa Claus will make his grand entrance at approximately 7 p.m. For more information, please visit http://www.thesummitonline.com/louisville/events/.
The Lights Up event will feature a baseball theme with a special appearance from Buddy Bat. In addition to interacting with our special guests, families will have the opportunity to participate in several games and children’s activities with prizes and giveaways including a prize wheel, pitching machine and a live ice-carving demonstration. Santa will also be available for complimentary professional photos with families between Mitchell’s Fish Market and Martini Italian Bistro. Patrons are urged to arrive early and enter from the Springdale Rd. entrance near the GAP for easier parking.
