Luxury In Lights - Market Street

Annual Lighting Luminary

Each year, Market Street – The Woodlands looks for a special child or deserving family to flip the switch that will light 70-foot Christmas tree as part of its Christmas Light Spectacular on the Thursday before Thanksgiving; they name this special individual their Lighting Luminary. The Lighting Luminary is a child or family who has overcome incredible odds, made a significant contribution to the community, or perhaps helped someone in need.


Market Street's Christmas Light Spectacular celebration also includes musical entertainment, magic elves, and carriage rides.

Who is the Lighting Luminary for 2017?

The Belcher family of Montgomery, known for donating "Parker's Packages" in memory of their youngest son, has been selected to light up Market Street and its 70-foot Christmas tree as part of the "Market Street in Lights" holiday spectacular to be held in Market Street's Central Park on Thursday, November 16. The Belcher family: mom, Kristen; dad, Zach; and children Addison and Chance will flip the switch to officially kick off the holiday season.


Sarah Trout, a former colleague of Kristen's, nominated the Belcher family. She recalls how the family learned that Parker would not live long after birth due to his heart defects and are now turning their tragedy into countless acts of service to their community in his name with "Parker's Packages." During the opening of Texas Children's Hospital – The Woodlands, the Belcher family hosted a "Blankets and Books Drive" to provide much-needed blankets for patients and books for the library at the campus. More recently, during Hurricane Harvey the family reached out to the community to ask for personal hygiene items and created care kits that were donated to Oak Ridge Baptist Church for flood victims throughout the region. So many donations were taken that several 18-wheelers were needed to transport them! Each December, they host a toy and stocking drive for the patients at Texas Children's Hospital main campus in Houston, as well as helpful items for expecting mothers and their new babies at the nearby Pavilion for Women. They plan to continue this December tradition at the main campus, as well as a drive for The Woodlands campus each April.
