Over the years many businesses, civic groups and 100’s of volunteers have supported Light Up and come together to welcome almost 1 million visitors, counting people, taking photos, and making sure that the lights are as bright and as spectacular from one evening to the next.
Presenting a spectacular light display is not all that Light Up is about. The mission of Light Up Middletown is to raise funds to make improvements to Middletown City Parks and to present a first-class holiday event that will draw guests not only from the immediate area but from a wider region. By working with other local holiday event planners and light displays, Light Up Middletown hopes to make Middletown a hub of holiday activity. With the donations received at the gate and the many business sponsors through the years, they have planted dozens of trees, helped with electrical updates and recently working with the City and MYSA and the Ohio Challenge, have started repaving the roads in Smith Park.
