Light Up Night is a multicultural celebration that features live entertainment and activities in multiple locations (Capitol Theatre, Continental Square, Central Market, Christ Lutheran Church, and Martin Library), family-friendly activities, food, carol singalongs, the lighting of the York City Christmas Tree (tree lighting ceremony begins 6:20 p.m.), and the arrival of the most important guest, Santa. Fun for the whole family!  

Light Up Night will also serve as a collection point for Toys for Tots and guests are asked to consider bringing a new unwrapped toy. Bonus: Everyone who donates a toy at Continental Square during Light Up Night will be entered into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Central Family Restaurant. The first 25 who donate will also receive a $10 gift certificate to Central Family Restaurant (one per household, please).
