Luminaria in Riverside Avondale at night with luminaries on the sidewalks

Save the date for one of Riverside Avondale's beloved celebrations, Luminaria. The annual tradition of commemorating the holiday season with luminaries will take place on December 15th this year. Residents place the sidewalk candles in front of their homes, businesses, and local parks starting at dusk. The 2019 Luminaria marks the 35th year that the event has taken place in this historic Jacksonville neighborhood. 

Luminaria was started by the late Jerry Spinks as a way to raise money for Riverside Avondale Preservation (RAP).The neighborhood non-profit sells luminaria kits with the bags, candles, and sand included. These kit sales benefit RAP's work to preserve the historic fabric and unique character of the neighborhoods.
