Kick off the holiday season by joining in the fun of riding around Muhlenberg Township to see the holiday lights while supporting the Muhlenberg Community Library and the Muhlenberg Arts Board. This joint fundraising event will be held on Saturday, Dec. 9, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Tickets are on sale now at the Muhlenberg Community Library, 3612 Kutztown Road, Laureldale, and the Township Building, 210 George St., Reading, at the cost of $25/vehicle. As a bonus, pick a free book as a “thank you” when you purchase your ticket at the library.
A drive-by tour has been arranged, featuring five homes in the Muhlenberg area with amazing exterior light displays. Each stop will have something special to see, and you must show your ticket to be a part of the fun. There will be bonus stops, as well, that may include refreshments, a visit from Santa, and more. Make a donation to the Muhlenberg Food Pantry at Good Shepherd’s UCC Church and receive a children’s book as a thank you (optional stop).
There will be a poker run to add to the fun as you visit the homes along the route. Pick a card at each stop, and the best 5-card poker hand will win $100 in PA scratch-off lottery tickets.
This is a family-friendly event. Decorated cars and holiday outfits are encouraged. Participants will pick up the list of homes on the trail from the library on Dec. 9, starting at 5:30 p.m. This is a self-paced event, so everyone does not have to start at 5:30 p.m. but must be completed by 8:30 p.m.
The library’s Holiday Basket Raffle will be on display prior to the event for participants who would like to take a chance on some great prizes. Chances are 5 for $5 or 15 for $10. Drawing will take place Monday, Dec. 11. Need not be present to win.
