The Hills are alive with art, light, and music!

Join us on September 23, 2017 from 7:30-9:30 pm in the Westhills community for the second annual Light Up the Hills festival. Light Up the Hills is a family-friendly outdoor festival of light presented by the West Shore Arts Council and Westhills. Held after dark, featured illuminated artworks will create a spectacular glowing effect throughout the community. Event participants will walk along a designated path, passing by various performances and artworks, and using hand-made lanterns to guide their way. This community-focused event aims to showcase the creativity of local artists, musicians, and performers.

Light your path with your own lantern creation or join in on one of three lantern-making workshops in the lead up to the event.
