Event Details

A holiday tradition that goes back over three decades, the Limestone College Luminaries, will enchant those who come to campus during its annual Christmas celebration set for Saturday, Dec. 7.

The luminaries, which will be lit by 5 p.m., will be placed on the front campus, and portions of College Drive and other areas near the College for the 35th consecutive year.

The Limestone tradition dates back to 1984 when the late Les Gregory, a former staff member and graduate of the College, arranged for 200 luminaries to be lit in honor of retired professor Lucy G. Wheeler. Since Gregory’s inception, the luminaries have grown to over 10,000 candles and the event has grown into one of the most anticipated nights of the year at Limestone.

The luminary event is now organized each year by Limestone’s Athletics Department, with student-athletes filling the white bags with sand and candles, placing them on and around campus, and lighting the candles.
