The event will also afford residents to participate in the 'Night Light' community service project, which will  assemble tote bags for Summit first responders to give to children when they are involved in a call or emergency situation.

The 'Night Light Bags' will include a blanket, stuffed animal, and glow stick. The City of Summit is encouraging residents to donate new, hard-cover books to be included in tote bags as well.

In the event of inclement weather, the event will be moved to the Sanctuary at Central Presbyterian Church, located at 70 Maple Street.
