Green Lake Pathway of LIghts

Green Lake Pathway of Lights: It’s an at-home, DIY event for 2021

How you can get a luminary kit for a celebration close to home.

Green Lake Pathway of Lights has been a festive holiday tradition for many families. People would stroll around the lake holding candles and enjoying performers.

Seattle Parks announced it won’t be held this year because of the difficulty of enforcing public-health requirements.

However, you can host your own event!

Seattle Parks and Recreation is selling Pathway of Lights kits so families can celebrate at home or in their neighborhoods. The kit includes luminary supplies, instructions and some family-friendly surprises. (Not included: sand or rocks to weigh down the luminary bag.)

Here’s how to order your kit — but act fast; supplies are limited!

Either way, you’ll arrange to pick up your kit between Dec. 6-10 at one of these community centers: Ballard, Delridge, Green Lake, Meadowbrook, Miller or Rainier.

Also, check the  Green Lake Community Center Facebook page to enjoy music, videos, and photos from past Pathway of Lights events. In addition, families are invited to share photos of their own Pathway of Lights celebration.
