Festival of Lights set to roll

Sechelt’s 2019 Festival of Lights parade looks like it will match the record number of floats from 2018, with about 30 entrants signed on so far for the Saturday, Nov. 30 event, according to organizer Theressa Logan of the Sechelt Downtown Business Association. 

“The weather’s going to be great, and we’ve got Santa on the fire truck, of course, at the end,” Logan said.

The forecast is for partly cloudy skies and temperatures just above freezing. 

The parade, featuring several big trucks and other vehicles decorated in lights, caps off a day of downtown festivities, Logan noted.

“The Trail Bay Centre will again have the Make and Take Crafts for the kids. That starts at 2:30. That’s free. It’s very festive at the mall, where they again have a whole lot of trees up this year,” she said. 

“After that, people can make their way to the Light the Lights at Rockwood Centre. That’s where the carollers will be. And they’ll turn on the Christmas lights at 5 p.m., then everyone can make their way down to Cowrie Street for the parade, which starts at 5:45.”

The festival was inaugurated by the Coasters Car Club in 2010.
