Luminary Kit Instructions
Fold down top of each white bag, twice (about 2 inches). This will make the bag sturdier and will prevent the bag from flapping and catching fire.
Pour 1 cup (8 – 10 oz.) of sand into the bottom of each bag.
Place 1 candle in the sand in the middle of the bag (make sure wick is standing up).
Bags should be placed about 5 feet apart along the curb. Long-neck lighters/grill lighters are recommended for lighting the candles.
Have bags placed along the curb in front of your house and candles lit by 6:00pm. Do not fill bags before Sunday afternoon as the sand moisture will cause the bags to tear.
Be responsible when displaying bags – bags should be placed only on concrete/road near curb far away from anything that could catch fire. Be aware of blowing leaves, dangling tree limbs, etc.
Please park all cars off the street so that all luminaries are visible.
At 8:30pm, extinguish all lit candles and remove bags from your curb.
Feel free to help clean up any common space/parks after 8:30.
Enjoy the beautiful evening with your neighbors and friends!
If your luminary kit is missing a bag or candle, stop by the DIS School Bus Loop on Saturday (12/2) from 9:30-11 or there will be a supply box with extra bags and candles located behind the school on Sunday.
Rain Date: Monday, Dec. 4th
