Event Details

***This event is canceled due to weather, Columbus County Parks and Recreation announced Monday. ***

Columbus County Parks and Recreation will sponsor the 29th annual Candlelight Event on Monday, Dec. 10, at 6 p.m. The event will feature a variety of music presented by local talent at Vineland Station in downtown Whiteville. Distribution of candle “glow sticks” will begin at 5:30 p.m. Free hot chocolate and sweet treats will be provided.

The first candle light walk was held in 1990, as troops fought in the Gulf War. Columbus County citizens banded together, with over 700 citizens to light a candle and join voices in support of all who were serving the country.

“While wars are still raging, soldiers continue to fight for our freedom and law enforcement officers are constantly fighting wars in our communities, there are many reasons for the citizens of Columbus County to come together to sing in peace and harmony,” a Columbus County Parks and Recreation press release stated.
