Ipswich Illumination 2018

Another successful year of community spirit at Ipswich Illumination! Andrea Della Valle, despite her broken ankle, handed out over 250 light sticks and the word on the street is that they were a huge hit! The look on this little girl's face tells the story!

Ipswich Illumination 2017 - Winners!

Ipswich Illumination Ipswich MA

The Ipswich community was shining bright at this year's Illuminations event! We passed out 250 light-up foam wands that have now been referred to as "bonkers" "light sabers" & "whackers". Excited winners of our Ipswich Illuminations gift card give-away Sean and Caitlyn along with their camera shy younger sister, won the Henry Bear's Park gift card! They were headed out to shop right after this photo was taken. Huge crowds were reported by The Local News . Thank you Ipswich! We are proud to be part of such a generous, kind, supportive community!
