The question on every one’s mind this weekend – is Lights In The Heights happening? An online medium reported the event as canceled and the social media outcry of disapproval and disagreement ensued.
But, there is good news, the event is indeed still on and our local bars and venues are taking part of some of the fun. Walk the neighborhood of beautiful Woodland Heights to catch the Christmas lights and take in the neighborhood charm.
In the last couple of years, there have been neighbors disgruntled about the event turning into a party. To solve the problem, stroll the neighborhood to take in the holiday spirit, then head over to the following events to join in their Saturday night festivities, elsewhere.
3rd Annual Karbach LITH Ride & Ugly Sweater Contest
To avoid the crowd and road closures, Karbach Running Club is hosting their ride a day early. At 6 p.m., Friday, Dec. 11, join Karbach Cycling Director Adam LeSage and the rest of the Karbach Team for the 3rd Annual Lights in the Heights Bike Ride and Ugly Sweater Contest. The party will start at Cottonwood – 3422 N Shepherd Dr. Then ride through the Heights to check out some lights, make a beer stop at Liberty Station – 2101 Washington Ave. – and then head back to Cottonwood where there will be a Christmas movie and some pints. The best ugly sweater and decorated bike will win Karbach prizes. Don’t forget your helmet.
Rockin’ Around The D&T Before LITH
Before heading over to see the lights, stop in D&T for a flight of Christmas beers and join in their tacky Christmas sweater contest and ornament painting festivities from 2-6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 12. There will be holiday records playing for the occasion.
After you take in the lights and holiday cheer, take the party to D&T for the night.
D&T is located at 1307 Enid St.
Christian’s Tailgate’s LITH party
Over off of White Oak, Christian’s Tailgate is taking part of this year’s festivities from 6 p.m. – 2 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 12, with live music, art vendors and ugly sweater contests all night.
Also all night, Christian’s will be serving up $3 shots. Visit them at 2820 White Oak Dr.
