Luminary Lane Returning for 69th Year
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – A bright holiday tradition returns to Sioux Falls Sunday night for the 69th year.
Luminary Lane has been the staple of the Park Ridge neighborhood in Sioux Falls since 1948.
Every year on the Sunday before Christmas Eve, families in the neighborhood display candles on their front yards right after the sun goes down.
Neighbors have been setting up luminaries all Sunday afternoon.
A Sioux Falls pastor brought the holiday tradition to the community after a trip to Mexico.
The Tolly family lives in the neighborhood and looks forward to the tradition each year.
“Well, our kids are in Spanish Immersion, just a few blocks away so the fact that it comes from Mexico, that cultural aspect of it, but we also just love that it’s meaning behind it is inviting the light of Christ into Christmas,” said Tamee Tolly.
Neighbors expect more favorable weather this year to bring a larger crowd. The event kicks tonight at 5:30PM on 26th and Hawthorne.
