Newport’s Ballard Park Wants Your Unused Christmas Lights

Friday, December 14, 2012

 

If all your Christmas lights aren't bedecking your tree, think about giving them a whole new life in a great winter event. Friends of Ballard Park is accepting donations of Christmas tree lights and lamps for use in its 8th Annual Illuminated Garden in February. The free event features thousands of lights displayed on the trees and unique features of Ballard Park’s three acre quarry meadow during Newport’s Winter Festival. This year’s event is scheduled for Thursday, February 21, Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23 from 6 to 9 pm.

What's needed

Working Christmas tree lights of all shapes, sizes and colors will be accepted. Lamps should be two feet or highter. Friends of Ballard Park is also looking for thoroughly clean one gallon milk jugs. The jugs will be used by Newport elementary school students to build igloos which will be displayed on February 21, 22 & 23 in Ballard Park. Friends of Ballard Park will acknowledge all donations with a receipt which may be used on for tax purposes. Drop off lights or milk jugs to Friends of Ballard Park’s office at 226 Bellevue Avenue #10 Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5 pm.

Friends of Ballard Park is a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting, maintaining and promoting Newport's Only Nature Preserve. Its goals are to ensure Ballard Park remains a wild and natural open space for future generations; encourage the local public to visit and use the park; provide educational and cultural opportunities for local youth and families and highlight the unique qualities and historical importance of Ballard Park which is located on Wickham Road in Newport.
