Burnsville’s Heart of the City will once again shine with holiday lights this winter season when the area is set aglow during the community’s 16th-Annual Winter Lighting Ceremony.

When:      Wednesday, Nov. 26, 2014 from 6 to 6:45 p.m.
Where:     Nicollet Commons Park, located on Nicollet Avenue and 126th Street. 

More than 200,000 mini lights, 230 streetlight snowflakes and a 30-foot-tall tree will come to life again this November, and all Burnsville residents and winter-lighting enthusiasts are invited to attend.

Jo Jo’s Rise & Wine and Venue 13 - Burnsville's Live Music Headquarters, will provide complimentary hot beverages, Chianti Grill will provide complimentary fresh baked cookies, and Cub Foods will provide candy canes. Glow stick favors will be provided by Custom Drapery & Blinds of Burnsville.

Free parking is available at the Heart of the City Park and Ride Ramp located one block north of Burnsville Parkway on Pillsbury Ave., and in the Heart of the City Parking Deck located north of the Burnsville Performing Arts Center.

For the fifth consecutive year, the Winter Lighting will use light-emitting diode (LED) lights – resulting in approximately 90 percent less energy use compared to traditional incandescent lights.

The Winter Lighting Ceremony is sponsored and paid for by the 
Burnsville Community Foundation through generous donations from area businesses and residents. Over the past 15 years, the Foundation has raised more than $500,000 to make this event a cherished Burnsville tradition.
