Illumination is an annual summer event on Martha's Vineyard. This event takes place every third Wednesday in August, (rain date Thursday.) It's a night of colorful lanterns. These lanterns decorate "gingerbread cottages", which are located in Martha's Vineyard Camp Meeting Association in Oak Bluffs. The festivities begin at 7:30 PM at the Tabernacle with a live band. Come with family and friends, take a walk through the campgrounds, and see all the beauty for yourself. And remember, stop by Phillips Hardware to pick up all your lantern needs!
