Lights of Love

Hometown Pride is excited to open reservations for 2021 Lights of Love.

Norwalk residents can honor people especially important in their lives by purchasing a Scotch Pine tree, decorated with a red bow and white lights, that will be part of a light display along Sunset Blvd/Highway 28 throughout the month of December.

Trees are $100 and will feature the donor and honoree’s name. By purchasing a tree, you are supporting Norwalk HTP projects.

Follow the link to reserve your tree today! https://norwalk-hometown-pride.square.site/product/norwalklightsoflove/36?cs=true&cst=custom
