Easton Peace Candle Goes Up Wednesday

The city's biggest holiday decoration due to be lit next week.

Say goodbye to the monument in Easton's Centre Square, at least for the next few months.

On Wednesday, the city is due to put up the Peace Candle, the giant annual holiday decoration that covers the monument.

The candle is scheduled to be lit next Friday night, a ceremony that's one of Easton's biggest events of the year. 

It typically stays up from November until well after the New Year.

Easton's began fundraising efforts earlier this year to replace the candle, a job expected to cost $25,000.

Yes, the annual display of the ugly monstrosity with the blue drippings. Although with the much improved monstrosity this year the drippings are supposed to match the color of the candle.
