Moon Lights Holiday Festival 

Date: Saturday, December 5th
Time: 5-8pm
Moon Park

The Moon Lights Holiday Festival returns to Moon Township.  This annual festival began several years ago and outgrew its original location at the Township building.  Last year it moved to Moon Park and included the lighting of all park pavilions.  This year we are adding new light displays.  Each year we will be building on these displays.  We hope to make Moon Park a destination for holiday light viewing.     

The safety of our community is our highest priority.  This event will adhere to current CDC guidelines surrounding Covid-19.  

The full event runs 5-8pm at Moon Park. The Yule Village at the Brewer Airport Pavilion will operate from 2-7pm for holiday shoppers. Dress for the weather. This event runs rain, snow, or shine.

They do great work, and when we asked how we could help they suggested a Personal Care Drive. Many families are having difficulties purchasing items such as: toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo, soap, cleaning products, feminine care items, toilet paper, paper towels.

Moon Park Ice Rink

The Moon Park Ice Rink returns this winter! Our projected opening date is Saturday, December 12th. We are just awaiting the arrival of our new ice panels. This year the rink is doubling in size to 48ft by 68ft and moving onto tennis courts 3 & 4. The rink will be open Sunday through Wednesday from dawn to dusk, and Thursday through Saturday from dawn to 9pm.

Only skates are allowed on the rink. No street shoes. The rink is constructed of acrylic ice. It performs much like real ice, but doesn't require below freezing temps. For the best glide, we recommend sharp skates. The rink is free and open to the public. At this time we do not have skates available for rent.
