SDBA presents Light the Lights


Once again the Sunshine Coast Community is set to begin the Christmas season with the lighting of the lights at Rockwood Centre this Saturday, Dec. 7 in an event sponsored by the Sechelt Downtown Business Association (SDBA).

Light the Lights is in its 25th year and has remained the traditional beginning of the Christmas season for the Sunshine Coast.

Hosted originally by the Suncoast Rockwood Lodge Society and decorated under the supervision of Bruno Reznik, the festivities took place in the north wing. Soon growing too large for the space, the celebrations were moved to the Festival Pavilion and for many years more than 100 children and many choirs would perform on stage before the lights went on.

Reg and Lynne Dickson wrote a song for this occasion called “Light the Lights” in 1997 with all proceeds going to the upkeep of the heritage home.

For the past few years there has been carolling in the gardens so people can be right among the lights when they go on. For two years we had a magical parade of lights hosted by the Coasters Car Club.

This year the lights will go on at 5 p.m. with carolling until 5:30. People are encouraged to arrive at 4:45 and enjoy some hot chocolate. When the carolling is over a guest in red will appear and everyone is invited to carol down through Sechelt. Many stores in Sechelt will remain open until 7 p.m.
