Annual Normal Park Neighborhood Association Night of Lights brings out holiday cheer in Ypsilanti Saturday night.
By Editor & Publisher Jeff Brown.
What a merry night it t'was in Ypsilanti's Normal Park Neighborhood Saturday evening, December 9, as the neighborhood was aglow with twinkling luminaries that were weighted down with lovely cat litter. Cat litter, you ask?! Yeah, cat litter. It's a main luminary ingredient! Partially filling the bags that contain the little candle keeps the bags from tipping or blowing over, of course.. Anyway, The NPNA Night of Lights went off without a hitch even if yours truly didn't do a very good job of filling the luminary bags with cat litter, so our luminaries keep tipping over and catching on fire. Oy. Other folks in the neighborhood did a far better job with their luminary kits and Normal Park looked fab.
The annual Normal Park Neighborhood Night of Lights is organized by the Normal Park Neighborhood Association and it is greatly appreciated by the neighborhood.
The coolest thing about the NPNA Night of lights is that not only do you get to stroll about the neighborhood looking at the lights, but you get to actually go into the homes of utter, complete and total strangers and eat and drink stuff. Yeah, it's true! Regardless of political party affiliation, also! I know!! Folks were encouraged to stop by seven neighborhood homes where hot chocolate and cider were offered. How much more communityish can it get?
