Chestnut Hill’s Germantown Avenue “”Main Street”” will be transformed once again during the fifth annual Night of Lights! As with last year, we have extended the originally one-night event to allow participants the time and space to enjoy the exhibition safely.

Over one and a half weeks in October, historical images and films from the Chestnut Hill Conservancy’s (and partners’) Archives will be projected through storefront windows along Germantown Avenue, while neighboring historic buildings will be illuminated with colored lights.

The festive live elements from past Night of Lights will return for the magical opening night on Friday, October 8th (rain date: October 9th), while the exhibition will remain on view for self-guided explorations and return visits through Sunday, October 17th.
