Big Spring Park is the place to be Friday night, as “Light Up the Night” — an event sponsored by the Huntsville Parks & Recreation department — promises to be a fabulous event, taking place from 6-9PM..

The area by the spring will be transformed with specialty lighting while a DJ will keep everyone moving on the lighted dance floor. Here are the details:

This is the first time the city has hosted this event, but hopefully won’t be the last.

Attendees are invited to adorn the park with chalk art while enjoying music, games and a glow foam party. After dark, black lights will illuminate chalk art and the gaming area. Glow sticks and chalk will be provided, and Huntsville Parks & Recreation will give away lighted beach balls to the first 100 kids.

There will also be neon face paint and glow sticks. Then, get ready for the ultimate party experience when glow foam fills a section of the park from 7-9PM.

Concessions will also be available for purchase at Downtown Huntsville Inc.’s Food Truck Rally, taking place adjacent to the park on Church Street.

Light Up the Night is free, and is a “rain or shine” event.

Light Up the Night is one of the events celebrating Parks & Recreation Month in Huntsville. The theme for 2023 Parks & recreation Month is “Where Community Grows,” emphasizing how important a community’s parks are to help it thrive and continue to move forward.

“From glow sticks to black lights, Big Spring Park East will be awash in color. Huntsville has so many great parks, and Light Up the Night is a great way to celebrate one of our favorites during Parks & Recreation Month.”

James Gossett, director, Huntsville Parks & Recreation
