Can you believe it’s already time for the Night of the Luminaria? This is one of my favorite Galena Holiday events and is being sponsored by the Galena Area Chamber of Commerce, who says “Encounter the ethereal beauty of Galena as it is transformed along streets, steps and walkways into an enchanting, serene and magical place. Radiating with over 5000 candle-lit luminaries aglow around the city. Whether you choose to stroll down sidewalks, travel by trolley or cuddle up in a carriage, you will be captivated by the peaceful splendor of it all. The event offers an opportunity to experience the city from a different perspective and for many attending has become a family tradition”.
Area businesses have extended their hours, which makes this a perfect opportunity to shop local! And when you need a little rest, stop in one of the local restaurants for some food (and spirits). There are many wonderful restaurants to choose from so you can feed whatever it is you’re craving.
Prefer to stay warm and cozy and let someone else do the driving? Take the Night of the Luminaria Bus Tour, provided by Amelia’s Tours. Tours run from 5:00pm – 7:00pm on the half hour. Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for children and reservations are required as space is very limited. Check out Amelia’s Facebook Page for more information.
Galena is just so beautiful during Luminaria. Come on out to Galena and see the beauty of The Night Of The Luminaria for yourself!
