Light up Gates celebration held on Sunday
GATES, N.Y. — Neighbors in Gates lit up the town on Sunday night with the start of the annual “Light up Gates” celebration.
This marks the 3rd year of the celebration. The event started during the COVID pandemic as an alternative way to celebrate the holidays safely.
Town officials say the event gets more popular every year. This year’s Light up Gates is split into two nights, with two Santas and two sleighs.
“This year, I’ve had more people reach out or comment or want to get involved. as you can see, we have two lines, we have a ton of cars because even some of the residents and local people that hang out with us, want to put their vehicles,” said Chief Robert Long of the Gates Police Department.
