Weather nixes Netherwood luminaria

No luminaria this year, owing to expected wind and rain.

With rain and blustery winds expected through Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day, Plainfield's Netherwood Heights Neighbors has decided to cancel the annual luminaria extravaganza.

2014 would have been the ninth year of this dazzling offering to the community. It has become a well-known holiday attraction, drawing visitors not only from Plainfield but also from surrounding communities for a slow, pleasant drive through one of the Queen City's charming neighborhoods.

Despite the disappointment of missing the spectacle, the Netherwood Neighbors offer plenty of other year-round activities. Check their website here -- and don't forget they are offering a 2015 wall calendar featuring historic photos of Plainfield's four railroad stations (see more here).
