James Launches First Annual ‘Light Up California’ Event

Seeking to bring a west Louisville neighborhood together, Councilman David James, D-6, is launching the first ever “Light Up California” event.

Similar to Light Up Louisville, the event will include live musical performances by the choir of First Gethsemane Baptist Church and the River City Drum Corps. The festivities will also include James welcoming a man playing Santa Claus and other city officials to the event.

James says the event is about encouraging unity amongst the resident and promoting public safety in the neighborhood.

“Light Up California will be a great opportunity for residents of the California neighborhood to come together for a fun evening in the heart of their community. I look forward to starting this new tradition with our friends in California,” James said in a news release.
