South Whitehall Township’s annual Tree and Bridge Lighting event will look different this year but will still surely get you in the holiday spirit! To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all residents, we will be hosting our first ever drive-thru Tree and Bridge Lighting event in Covered Bridge Park. We will be decorating the entire park and allowing vehicles to drive thru to enjoy a unique light display with the grand finale of seeing our decorated ‘Adopt-a-Tree’ trees and driving through the lighted Covered Bridge. You may even see Santa Clause and other special surprises throughout the park.
This event is free and open to the public although there will be a donation box available if you feel so inclined. All proceeds will support future park and recreation programming in the township.
All vehicles will enter the event at our temporary Yard Waste Drop-Off Site located at 2200 Wehr Mill Road, Allentown. Please take Huckleberry Rd. or Iron Bridge Rd. to Wehr Mill Rd. when arriving to the event. No buses will be allowed.
More details to come, make sure to keep your eye on our website and Facebook page for additional event information.
*** On December 18th the Parkland Cares Food Pantry will also be a part of this event collecting items for those in need. If you plan to donate, please have the items in bags in your trunk. We will have volunteers who can remove your donated items so you do not have to get out of your car. The food pantry’s most needed items are:
Peanut Butter (No Glass)
Jelly (No Glass)
Can Spaghetti O’s
