Why should East Sacramento have all the holiday decor fun? Curtis Park can light it up too!
Our inaugural Light Up Curtis Park took place in late December as homes all over the neighborhood decorated with lights, inflatables, ornaments, cutouts, signage and even bike tires. Entire streets banded together stringing lights between trees and light posts all the way down the block. Some strung tunnels of lights over the sidewalks and others wrapped trees and bushes in sparkly goodness. Some houses covered their front lawns in inflatable characters while others hung bulbs and lights from tree branches.
Participants were invited to register their decorated space online, send in a photo, and get their location pin placed on a Google map. Viewers could access the map on their mobile device as they wandered by car, foot, or bike through Curtis Park. Participants were encouraged to maintain social distancing and wear masks.
Viewers were encouraged to vote for their favorite spaces or blocks online. The votes came pouring in! In total, 182 people voted and the top 4 locations were awarded prizes.

Local businesses were excited to sponsor the event including Gunther’s Ice Cream, Hop Gardens, Summer Moon Yoga and Pangea Beir Cafe who donated gift cards to reward the winners.
A huge thank you to all the people who decorated, visited, voted and spread the word.
