What is Light Night?

Light-Night is a series of free events, Lighting up the Night with free wearable LED lights

We're empowering residents to improve neighborhood safety and their own health with fitness-based night traffic. Studies have shown that as more people are out and about, walking, running or biking, not only does a community feel safer, it becomes safer.

Wearable lights are given away during registration and safety briefing. Then the groups set out on a short tour through the city, typically ending with an after party! When the weather is nice we try to emphasize a local park. This isn't a race, it's about the journey through the City. It's a place for originality and community!


So far we've purchased and installed 3 bike racks for Newport City Parks and we've also handed out kid's bike helmets!

Given away over 1500+ LEDs

Our high quality LED lights increase visibility and awareness. We offer a variety of colors for running, biking, and walking participants.

Participate and Win

With themed costume contests and other prizes, you can win a variety of high quality items just for dressing up and having fun.

How can you support?

We are all volunteers at Light Night, and our biggest costs are in infrastructure improvements and LEDs. You can sponsor a box of LEDs, sponsor a bike rack, or donate to our events! Any level of support is appreciated, our volunteers put in a lot of work to pull these off.

We are always looking for event volunteers. We need fun loving people to handle registration and team leaders to walk, run, or bike groups through the City.

How can you join in?

All fitness and experience levels are encouraged to participate!

With biking, walking, or running; you can participate however you like! We will have group leaders to assist you from registration, through the City of Newport, to our after party event!
