Mile of Sunshine
As with many things in 2020, Light Up LaGrange will be different this year. Due to the high increase in Covid cases and after deliberation with Oldham County Health Department, City of LaGrange Officials and The LaGrange Main Street Program it has been determined that the official Light Up ceremony and large community gathering will not take place this year.
Instead, we will Light Up LaGrange all season with lights, shopping, visits with Santa (socially distanced, of course), Shop small Saturdays, contests and more. From Shop Small Saturday on November 28th through the Holiday season we invite you to enjoy the lights, the atmosphere and all that LaGrange has to offer. The health and safety of our community is our number 1 priority and our goal is to ALWAYS BE KIND to our family, friends and neighbors. That's what the City of LaGrange is all about.
