This holiday season Fishtown Preservation has lit the rooftops of Leland’s Historic Fishtown with strings of white lights to celebrate our donors, volunteers, and everyone who has made the last twelve years of saving Fishtown possible. The light display continues nightly through January 6, 2019 ~ 5:00pm-10:00pm.
FPS turned on the lights on December 14 with a special “Fishtown in Lights” event. At the event we honored our dear friend Keith Burnham, and all those who’ve helped preserve Fishtown. In 2006, Keith spread the word far and wide via The Leland Report that Fishtown needed saving, and has visited Fishtown almost daily for the last twelve years.

Thanks to all who made the Fishtown in Lights event a success—including over two hundred Fishtown friends that attended the lighting ceremony.
Enjoy this photo gallery of images shared by many of our Fishtown friends, and we hope that you are able to see the display and take memorable photos of your own! Share your photos with us via [email protected] or Facebook message. #FishtownInLights
Many have asked if lighting the Fishtown shanty rooftops for the holidays will become a yearly tradition? The answer is possibly—if there are businesses and/or families that become sponsors. If you are interested, please let us know at [email protected]
