Langford Christmas light-up brings festive flair to the park

Veteran's Memorial Park the place to be in Langford this Saturday

The City of Langford is kicking off the holiday season with its annual light up event on Saturday, Dec. 5, at Veterans Memorial Park.

Bring the family and enjoy music, shopping and crafts for the kids, as well as free hot dogs and hot chocolate (while supplies last).

The Goldstream Station Christmas Market opens at 5 p.m. with the West Shore Community Band and Colwood Choir performing throughout the evening.

Santa Claus is even expected to arrive at 7 p.m., before the tree light-up and the IEOA Truck Light Convoy and Food Drive passes through the City at around 7:45 p.m. So bring a non-perishable food item to donate, Langford Fire Rescue will be collecting them in the park.
