Seattle Parks and Recreation, the Green Lake Community Center Advisory Council with the help of community partners, Green Lake Masonic Lodge #149 and the Hearthstone will host the 35th annual Green Lake Pathway of Lights on Saturday, December 10, from 5 – 8 p.m. The lighting of the path around Green Lake will take place rain or shine. Admission is free.
Join thousands of families, friends, and neighbors in this beloved Seattle tradition and travel the 2.8-mile path around the lake, taking in the warm glow of the luminaria. Visitors to the event are encouraged to bring their own lights and candles to add to the ambiance.
Local musicians will perform at four sites around the lake:
- Green Lake Community Center on the east side
- Green Lake Small Craft Center (the Aqua Theater) on the south side
- Bathhouse Theater (Seattle Public Theatre) on the north side
- the arch on the east of side of the community center/pool
Warm drinks and treats will be available at those locations, as will donation bins for non-perishable food items for Northwest Harvest.
Volunteers are needed to help place and light the thousands of luminaria and to clean up after the event. Individuals, businesses, community organizations, and school and scout groups are welcome to participate. Setup takes place from 3:30 – 5 p.m., and the lighting of the candles takes place at 5 p.m. Cleanup is from 8 – 9 p.m.
