Event website

Hospice of Southern Maine once again offers this annual remembrance event to the southern Maine community. Imagine thousands of luminarias glowing warmly, each light representing someone who has brought love and light into our lives. Hospice of Southern Maine is excited to bring Twilight in the Park, a time-honored tradition, to our community. This year, we will be hosting the event in person at Deering Oakes park in Portland as well as live streaming the program for those who wish to light their candles at home and participate virtually.

Anyone grieving the loss of a loved one is encouraged to attend, whether the death was recent or many years ago, and whether the loved one died in hospice care or not. Sharing the experience with others in the community who are also grieving a loss is a positive step in the healing process.
If participating virtually, upon the purchase of your luminaria(s), you will receive a kit in the mail to help you assemble your bag(s) at home while tuning into the live, virtual program. We welcome you to tune in at 6:00PM on September 25th to light your candle with us and stay for the official program that will begin at 6:30PM.

Please visit our website, , to order your luminaria(s) and sign up for the event!
