Night of Lights!October 6, 6:30-10pm
During the Night of Lights, historical images, films, and quotations from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy’s Archives will be projected through storefront windows and onto select exterior walls along the corridor after dark. Neighboring buildings along Germantown Avenue will be illuminated with theatrical lights, casting colors, patterns, and shadows to highlight their unique architectural features.
These will be enhanced with interactive elements such as postcard “Past-port”s to be collected along the corridor, “history pop-ups” in open properties, music, and more.
Presented in celebration of the Chestnut Hill Conservancy & Historical Society’s 50th Anniversary, Night of Lights is organized in partnership with the Chestnut Hill Business District and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. An opening reception at the VFW Building will include an opportunity for VIPs to “Flip the Switch” to kick off the event.
