The Tree is up and ready for decorating at City Hall. Sarnia is getting ready to usher in the Holiday season, which means the Festival of Lights, and the annual Santa Claus Parade.
A refurbished Festival Of Lights arch will once again be spanning Front Street and the displays will be lighting up the night. After a mishap with vandals, Board Member Cathie Blake says the community has really stepped up in assisting with the Festival.
They are still looking for more help Saturday morning (Nov. 18) where many will help fix the displays from Alexander MacKenzie High School that were damaged. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Suncor Agora in Centennial Park at 8 a.m.
The Festival of Lights has its opening ceremonies on Saturday, Nov. 25 at 4 p.m. and will run until January 13, 2018. Some 600,000 lights are part of the display.
Santa will be coming to town on December 2 for the 37th annual Sarnia Kinsmen Santa Claus Parade. This year’s theme will be the Christmas Story. The Parade will leave Exmouth St. at 6 p.m. and travel towards downtown heading south along Christina St. arriving at City Hall at 6:30 then the Library at 7 p.m.
