La Roche College and the Sisters of Divine Providence host their much-anticipated Festival of Lights tonight, Dec. 7. Equitable Gas sponsors the community wide event, open to everyone.
Families have been coming from all around the North Hills for the past 16 years to celebrate this annual transition into winter and the holiday season.
The festival begins at 3 p.m. with a craft show, featuring a variety of vendors and artists, in the Zappala College Center. There are activities for children, including crafts, games, and a visit from Santa in the Kerr Fitness & Sports Center.
Other activities include carriage rides around campus, ice sculpting, games and the night concludes with a fireworks display.
Admission is free to all the events, and patrons are urged to bring a canned food donation to benefit North Hills Community Outreach.
