Holiday Events

We invite you to join in as we welcome the holidays!


Holiday Light UpLightUp web

Join our Mayor and Council along with special guests in a flurry of holiday spirit as we countdown to our annual holiday light up of Victoria Square. 

Enjoy musical entertainment, community cheer and a cup of hot chocolate!  Don't forget to BYOM!  By bringing your own thermal mug we can reduce our use of single serve cups and lids. Not to worry, if you forget, we will have disposable available too.

Whether you want to watch all the great floats and entertainment or enter a float of your own, we welcome you to experience the sights and sounds of the holiday season during our evening Christmas Parade!   

 The annual Christmas Parade is open to all businesses, community groups and non-profit organizations wishing to participate in the parade.

Businesses get involved by putting in a float for the parade, designed to promote and advertise their business in a fun, free, festive atmosphere. This parade has continued to grow over the years with number of unique and creatively decorated floats, increasing every year.
