pathway-final

Seattle Parks and Recreation presents the Pathway of Lights at Green Lake on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m., rain or shine.

Join thousands of families, friends and neighbors for this beloved Seattle tradition. Travel the 2.8-mile path around the lake, taking in the warm glow of the luminaria, music and refreshments. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own lights and candles to add to the ambiance.

Local musicians will perform at three sites around the lake:

  • Green Lake Community Center on the east side
  • The Aqua Theater on the south side
  • The Bathhouse Theater (Seattle Public Theatre) on the north side

This fun event is free, but community members are encouraged to bring non-perishable food donations to benefit neighbors in need through the FamilyWorks food bank. Food donation bins, as well as warm drinks and treats, will be available at the locations listed above.

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 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. and cleanup from 7:30 to 9 p.m. If you’re interested in volunteering, please contact Vicki Allgood at 206-684-0780 or vicki.allgood@seattle.gov.

This Seattle tradition is presented in partnership with the Green Lake Advisory Council and with help from community partners, PCC Natural Markets, the Green Lake Masonic Lodge #149, Seattle City Light, Green Lake Chamber of Commerce, FamilyWorks, and the Associated Recreation Council.
