2nd Annual Lighted Christmas Balls Workshop

November 18, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Hey Plaza Midwood neighbors!

Get excited for the 2nd Annual Lighted Christmas Balls Workshop Extravaganza! Have you ever wanted to know how to make those Lighted Christmas Balls you see around the neighborhood during the holidays? Well, now is your chance! PMNA will be hosting a “workshop” on November 18th at the Vine Church lawn on Belvedere from 1-5 to make your own with tips and help from a pro. Or if you already know how to make them, come enjoy making them together- just make sure to bring your supplies.  Gather as many friends and neighbors as you can to help make Plaza Midwood littered with these awesome lighted Christmas Balls.  This is also a family friendly and festive event so bring your whole crew! 

We’ll also do a “dry run” (pun intended) this year for an unofficial nighttime 5k on December 8th at 7pm to check out all the lighted balls in the trees lit up!  We’d love for it to turn into something like this ( http://therunningoftheballs.com ) in the future with thousands of Charlotteans running through PM.  Contact Chris Rich (see below) if you have 5k hosting experience or would like to help make this a reality.  Here’s the vision in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=5&v=xsFzeuuHGeg

Look forward to seeing y’all there on November 18th!

***Here is the list of supplies to bring with you for the workshop to make your own Christmas balls:*** 

• 1 roll chicken wire (poultry netting) – 2′ x 50 ‘ makes 10-12 small balls

• 2, 100-count mini-light strands PER BALL ( Ex. 10 packs of lights makes 5 balls)

• work gloves

• wire cutters or sheers 

There will be extra supplies and tools on hand for those who need them- Donations just to recoup material cost will be accepted.
