Don’t Miss the 90 Nights of Orleans Lights!

The Orleans Improvement Association and the Department of Public Works have joined forces to create an illuminated Nightscape for Orleans this Summer from June 15th – September 15th.

Plan a leisurely “Light Walk” through town to enjoy the twinkling trees, illuminated with hundreds of white lights. Begin at Snow Library where the stately tree on the Library lawn dazzles the eye. From here, trees studded with lights lining both sides of Main Street, beckon you towards Parish Park. Stop at Parish Park to enjoy the magical, courtyard trees. Then continue on to Depot Square to view the newest Giant, light sculpture, “The Townie” bicycle which stands between two graceful dogwood trees dancing with lights. The Townie bicycle, funded by the Orleans Improvement Association in collaboration with the Orleans Cultural District was created by the artist, Michael Magyar. Wrap up your evening by strolling across the street to see the whimsical Artist Cottages.

The OIA thanks Tom Daley, Public Works and Natural Resource Director, Ron Collins, Facilities Manager, Dennis Hall, Assistant Public Works Manager and the entire staff of the Orleans Department of Public Works for their collaboration, implementation and creative vision that helped make these 90 Nights of Orleans Lights possible.
