Riverwalk Lights

 We partner with the community to light over 100 trees along the Riverwalk for the holidays. Together we create a quaint display that can be enjoyed with a lovely stroll around along the Riverwalk, around the millpond and past Centennial Park.

The lights are turned on after our annual Christmas Parade (Saturday, Nov. 9th 2024) and stay lit until early January.

We hired Rocket Lighting (formerly known as Brewed City Lighting) light focal trees that required special touches and their lift to reach high in the branches. They completed all the electrical hookups and took down the entire display.

This project is possible only because of generous donations from local businesses, service organizations, and individuals who sponsor the project monetarily, with their time, or both! 


Downtown Decorations

Our volunteers transform our downtown for the holidays. We collect greens and other natural materials and decorate our urns for winter interest.

In 2021,VBH purchased lit wreaths and garlands for 133 of the lamp posts in the downtown area. 


We partner with the High School on a Saturday morning at the end of October when students volunteer their time to install the garlands. The kids are just amazing!

VBH adult volunteers install the wreaths because of the extra high ladder work. We would love to partner with local businesses for our wreath install day.


The City of Hartford Utility Dept. helps by hanging all the wreaths and garlands along busy Hwy 60. At the end of the season the Utility Dept. comes and helps VBH volunteers take down all the wreaths and garlands and we store them away.
