Saturday’s annual Light Up always draws a good crowd

Trolley tours also scheduled to return this month

The annual Langford Light Up at Veterans Memorial Park on Saturday, Dec. 2, always fills the area with throngs of people and a heavy helping of holiday cheer. The event begins at 5 p.m. and includes a craft fair and free hot dogs, hot chocolate and coffee while supplies last.

Santa will also make an appearance at 6 p.m., with the lights on the largest tree in the park set to be switched on at 7.

The Island Equipment Owners Association’s Truck Light Convoy will also pass the event along Goldstream Avenue at about 8 p.m. and donations for that food drive will be accepted at the Light Up event.

If can’t make the event on Saturday or need a little more holiday spirit, the Christmas Light Up Trolley Tours are another popular event the family will enjoy. Participants are asked to meet in front of Westhills Arena next to Langford Lanes at City Centre Park on Dec. 15 to 17 at 6:15 or 7:15 p.m. There are two nightly tours lasting approximately 45 minutes. Admission is by donation of a non-perishable food item. Visit for more information on upcoming events.
