Each Christmas Eve, King’s Highway in East Harriet glows with paper lanterns to shed a light on domestic abuse.
The King’s Highway Luminaria will celebrate its 21st year this Dec. 24, with lights expected to start at 6 p.m., according to longtime organizer Mickey O’Kane.
The Luminaria raises money for the Domestic Abuse Project, a Minneapolis nonprofit that for years was located in Stevens Square before moving to Northeast in 2018. Neighbors have raised more than $26,000 for the Domestic Abuse Project since 2003, O’Kane said.
The Luminaria runs from 42nd Street to 47th Street, with sand-and-candle-filled bags lining the parkway, creating a pleasant glow for the holiday night.
