Lakewood Christmas lights

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — The city of Lakewood is launching a new initiative to bring togetherness to the city during the COVID-19 crisis.

The city is asking residents to decorate their front porch or balcony with string lights.

Participants are asked to use the hashtag #LovingLakewood or #LighttheLakewoodNight to show the community their lights.

“Light the Lakewood Night represents a simple way for community members to demonstrate that we are in this together,” said Ian Andrews, LakewoodAlive’s Executive Director. “Lakewood has always been a community of front porches, and now’s a great time for us to put these porches to good use to offer fellow community members a sign of hope during challenging times.”
