Friday, November 25, The Summerland Chamber of Commerce will host the
29th Annual Festival of Lights and expects to welcome 7000 visitors.
Downtown Summerland will once again transform into a holiday wonderland, drawing families from around the Okanagan.
Classic Light Up activities include dramatic fireworks, Santa’s workshop, photos with Santa, pony rides, ATV rides and bouncy castles, street performers and the annual ‘Season Sparkles’ art show at the Summerland Art Gallery. Two ice carving stations will be actively wowing the crowds and a host of food and gift vendors will line the streets, adding to the festive atmosphere. The crowd will gather for the mass countdown to the magical moment when all the downtown Christmas lights are switched on.
Festival goers are invited to join the fun: wear your Santa hats, your favourite Christmas scarf and of course, anything that lights up! Wearable Light Up options will be available for purchase.
The Bottleneck Drive Winery Association is also hosting the 6th annual Light Up the Vines events that weekend on Saturday and Sunday, November 26 & 27.
