Illumination Night, Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard

If the gingerbread cottages of Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard aren't cute enough by day...

...the candy-confection cottages are lit up
one night each summer for Illumination Night.

This celebration is over a century old.

I wasn't able to attend myself but one the Urban Cottage roving photographers was
on the island to capture the event for you.

I'll shut up and let you enjoy this enchanting event.

Thanks to Cynthia for sharing her photos!

If you would like to attend Illumination Night, it's typically held the third Wednesday of August.  I would probably start planning your vacation now as it's quite a popular event.
