Brookville VFC Will Continue ‘Light Up Night’ Tradition

BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) – In a letter to the Brookville Borough Council, Fire Chief Jim Lipuma announced the Brookville Volunteer Fire Company will continue the “Brookville Light Up Night” tradition.

“The Brookville Volunteer Fire Company is proud to assume and continue ‘Brookville Light Up Night’ and carry on the tradition that this evening offers as it unites our community and kicks off the Christmas season here in Brookville,” read Chief Lipuma’s letter.

The future of the annual event had been uncertain following the resignation of all members of the Light Up Night committee at a council meeting in July. A check with the committee’s remaining balance and the key to Santa’s cottage were turned over after a letter from solicitor Jim Dennison expressed concerns that the group was not governed by the council. Dennison was unwilling to assure that the event would be covered under Brookville borough’s insurance policy as required.

Borough council will now only be involved with approving the Brookville VFC’s request to close Main street for the event, not the event itself.

The festivities typically include music, food, entertainment, a parade, and a visit from special guest Santa Claus.

“Brookville Light Up Night” will be held on Friday, November 28, this year to kick off the Christmas season.
