PHOTO GALLERY: Colwood Christmas Light Up

Santa was the guest of honour at Colwood’s Christmas Light Up celebration Wednesday evening. Roughly 2,000 people were in attendance, enjoying hot chocolate and hot dogs as well as watching students from local elementary schools sing Christmas carols. There was even holiday-themed crafts.

Despite some technical difficulties with some of the music the event was a success and continues to be a holiday tradition for many.
