Metchosin Light Parade goes Sunday

The sound of sirens will hopefully only signal one thing this Sunday (Dec. 11) in Metchosin, as the fourth annual Light Parade passes through the district.

Fire trucks and commercial vehicles, adorned with festive lights and decorations, will tour the streets of Metchosin starting at the fire hall on Happy Valley Road at roughly 6 p.m.

They will turn right at William Head Road then turn again onto Rocky Point Road. From there the group heads down Liberty, LaBonne and Lindholm roads before heading back to the hall for around 8 p.m.

Timing may vary, so organizers ask that spectators assemble on the main roads to watch the parade. Listen for the sirens to know when it’s approaching. For more information, go to metchosinfire.ca and look under annual community events.
