Light Up CK Event, Photos

On Sunday, November 28, the Town of Cut Knife turned on the lights. Broad Street is now wonderfully decorated with a new array of LED Christmas decorations. Fundraising efforts began last spring, spearheaded by Mayor Gwenn Kaye, and included Pole Light Sponsors, a Silent Auction, and individual donations. Click here to view a summary of the campaign.

The festivities began with a free lunch of beef-on-a-bun and hot chocolate and continued with the Flag raising ceremony and, of course, the Light Up. It was a mild evening with a beautiful sunset and a crackling bonfire. If you missed the event, a few photos are posted below but to see the lights, take a turn down Broad Street in the evening. They’ll be on through Christmas.
