Summerland Festival of Lights

Events for Kids


Chil­dren of all ages come to Fes­ti­val of Lights to be enter­tained and awed by the lights and atmos­phere. Here are just a few of the things hap­pen­ing this year that your kids won’t want to miss:

  • Santa Pro­ces­sion: Santa arrives 5 pm, accom­pa­nied by his troupe of Christ­mas cow­girls. You won’t want to miss Santa’s car­riage, which will be pulled by two beau­ti­ful Clydes­dale horses.
  • Pho­tos with Santa: Santa will be in the new Library from 5:15 pm — 8:00 pm. If you are inter­ested in order­ing pho­tos this year, please visit our photographer’s web­site here for rates.
  • Santa’s Work­shop, spon­sored by Sum­mer­land Credit Union. Kids can make their own hol­i­day craft at this pop­u­lar event.
  • Kids Zone! Spon­sored by IGA Sum­mer­land. Chil­dren can burn off some energy in two bouncy cas­tles, before get­ting their photo taken with Santa in the brand new Sum­mer­land Pub­lic Library on Main Street.
  • Gin­ger­bread Man dec­o­rat­ing sta­tion, pre­sented by the RDOS! Visit them on Main street in front of the library!
  • Pony rides in Memo­r­ial Park
  • Let­ters to Santa pro­gram. Visit the elves at the Post Office to fill out and mail your let­ter to Santa.
  • Fun Games: High striker, fish­ing pond, and more. Kids are invited to visit  the annual Fish­ing Booth, hosted by Sum­mer­land Kins­men, in front of the Sum­mer­land Review.
