Friends and family are welcome to help celebrate the annual Light Up the Village ceremony at Park Royal tomorrow, November 13. The festivities will launch the holiday season and be open to the public from 5:30 pm to 8 pm at Keeper’s Crossing in the centre of The Village.
Light Up the Village 2015 will also kick off the beginning of a season-long partnership with Lions Gate Hospital Foundation.
The official Light Up the Village countdown will begin at 6:45 pm. Although this is a free event, there will be a variety of donation opportunities available. Guests are encouraged to support the Lions Gate Hospital Foundation to help further the outstanding impact they continue to have on our community. With activities and fun for the entire family, a dazzling 100,000 lights will sparkle throughout The Village, marking the arrival of the holiday season.
