Victorian Holiday 2017

Thousands of lights will brighten Rotary Park again this year. Every evening at 5:30 p.m. from Thursday, Dec. 5 through Sunday, Dec. 8, attendees can tune in to 88.5 FM and watch as the lights flicker with the holiday music.

The days may be getting shorter, but three Victorian Holiday events return to light up Stoughton in holiday colors, with the 28th annual Lighting of the Love Ceremony, Holiday Light Display and Fire Truck Parade.

Lighting of the Love

On Thursday, Dec. 5 at 4:30 p.m. the Partners of Stoughton Hospital will host their annual

Love Light Celebration in the Stoughton Hospital Bryant Health Education Center, 900 Ridge St. This year’s theme is “Special Gifts” and the lighting of the Love Light trees symbolizes the gifts

of recognition, remembrance and military service, according to a hospital news release.

“Love Light is a wonderful way for us to let the light shine for those we cherish and to also support Stoughton Hospital,” Love Light committee chair Diane Matson said in a news release.
