Langford gears up for light up celebration this Saturday

Activities get underway at 6 p.m. in Veterans Memorial Park

The City of Langford will be kicking off the holiday season this weekend with the 12th annual Christmas Light Up Celebration. Taking place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Saturday evening, the event is a great way for community members to get into the holiday spirit.

Taking place at Veterans Memorial Park (at the corner of Goldstream Avenue and Veterans Memorial Parkway), festivities get underway at 6 p.m. with the Goldstream Station Christmas Market.

Santa will be arriving shortly after at 6:15 p.m., followed by Christmas greetings, the tree light up and finally, the IEOA Truck Light Convoy and Food Drive.

Musical entertainment will be provided by Westshore Community Concert Band, Kydo the Clown, the Ablaze Singers Choir, and Clarks Martial Arts.

This is a free event, with lots of family-friendly activities. It also coincides with the annual Island Equipment Owners’ Truck Light Convoy and Food Drive, which will pass by on Goldstream Avenue before turning onto Veterans Memorial Parkway at around 8 p.m.
