Metro Louisville will continue the celebration of the holiday season when Councilwoman Barbara Shanklin invites District 2 residents to Newburg-Petersburg Park for this year’s “Light up Newburg”, on Saturday, December 8th.

“The people of District 2 always enjoy this holiday celebration,” says Shanklin.  “We have some fun activities planned but more importantly this event is a reminder of the wonder of the holidays.”

“Light up Newburg” will be held from 6:00pm – 8:00pm.  Newburg-Petersburg Park is located at the corner of East Indian Trail and Petersburg Road.

Santa Claus will be on hand to hear children’s holiday wishes for Christmas.  There will be holiday music and refreshments.

This year, the Teamsters National Black Caucus of Louisville has joined in the fun by helping bring gifts and holiday cheer to children of the area.

“We have music and fun planned as a way to offset the hectic hustle and bustle of this time of year,” says Shanklin.

In the event of inclement weather, the holiday fun will move inside the Newburg Community Center.
