UPDATE on HARBORSIDE LIGHTS:

Dear Residents and friends of Lake Carolina:

Saturday, December 10th, Lake Carolina will hold our 14th annual Harborside Lights and Harborside Lights 5K from 5:00-8:00pm! We have so much in store for this fun event and can't wait for you to all experience this annual Christmas Festival. Here are a few tips to keep in mind for Saturday:

USE ALTERNATE ENTRANCES
Between 5:15-5:45pm, use alternate entrances if possible. The main entrance will have folks coming for the event as well as homeowners who live in the front of the neighborhood. If you are able to enter through Centennial, Ashland or Kelly Mill Rd- please do so.

TAKE A BUS TO THE EVENT
There will be 2 buses continuously running to the event from 4:00pm-8:30pm.  The pickup locations will be the YMCA and the Centennial Pool.  Please drive to the location nearest you to get a ride to and from the event!

REAR PARKING
If you live in the Town Center, Harborside, Woodcrest neighborhoods, please park in the rear parking spaces of your home on Saturday afternoon and evening.  Thank you!

NOT A RESIDENT BUT COMING TO THE EVENT
If you don't live in Lake Carolina and are coming to the event, please continue on Hardscrabble Road past the main entrance and take a right onto Kelly Mill Road, and then a right into the YMCA entrance. You can then take one of the 2 shuttle buses we are offering for transportation to the event.

BE MINDFUL OF THE RUNNERS
If you live in Harborside, The Oaks, or Woodcrest neighborhoods, please be mindful and aware that the 5K Run will be taking place in your neighborhoods. This is a great event for our community. Please use caution if you are on the road during the event. The runners would also love if you cheered them on from your house!
