Partnering Locally for Be the Light Night in the Park


Archdale, N.C. – Join us at Creekside Park in Archdale for a brand-new holiday event. This year Archdale Parks and Recreation are partnering with Run 5 Feed 5 and the SerCo Club of Archdale Trinity (both 501c-3 charities) to host a fun, holiday inspired night in the park. We invite attendees to be the light in a child’s eyes on Christmas, or the light for a local hungry family by joining us on Saturday 12/4/21 4:30pm – 7:30pm.

The event will kick off with a luminary lit 5K Run/Walk at 4:30pm. It is only $30 to participate and if you bring a group, you can get a discount on that price. Prizes will be given out in several fun categories including craziest socks, best costume, and best lit participant. Proceeds from this event will benefit both Run 5 Feed 5 and the SerCo Club. You can sign up for the 5K here:

 At 4:30pm additional fun activities will begin including pictures with Santa and/or the Grinch, holiday music, marshmallow roasting, crafts for kids, cookies with Mrs. Claus, balloon candy canes, and food trucks. The city tree lighting ceremony will take place at 5:30pm in the round-a-bout. Candy Cane Hunts for kids ages 0 – 12 will be held at 5:45pm, 6:30pm, and 7:00pm. We ask that all attendees not participating in the 5K bring a unwrapped toy or non-perishable food item. 

Please note, the main entrance to Creekside Park, Park Drive, will be closed for this event. All vehicles will enter the park from Mose Drive.
