Collinwood Luminaries Tour

posted by Mason Black - 

The Collinwood Luminaries began in 1967 and now total over 1,500 sacks with candles prepared by the Collinwood neighborhood residents, the candles are set out along the roadway through the neighborhood to “light the path” on the “journey to the manger.” Along the luminary path you will see shepherds, wise men, and angels following the star on their way to see the Christ Child.

At the end of the luminary path you will find a live nativity scene – a gift from the youth group of First United Methodist Church of Opelika for over 33 years now.

The luminaries follow a one-way route beginning on Collinwood Street at the intersection of North Tenth Street and Oakbowery Road.  The tour winds through the entire Collinwood subdivision and ends on Mclure Avenue.
