Ladysmith Festival of Lights

Thursday Nov.28th is the spectacular Festival of Lights in Ladysmith! This year is the 26th Annual. Just some random tidbits of information before I share the itinerary for tonight.

  • Over 1000 volunteer hours goes into making it all shine!
  • Light-Up is ALWAYS the last Thursday in November
  • Over 200,000 Christmas Lights sparkle the town until January 13th.

The itinerary is as follows:

3pm: Community spaghetti dinner @ The Eagles Hall - Adults $8, Children under 10 $5.
Also, Christmas Craft Fair at the Aggie Hall

4pm: Street entertainment and food concessions (all along 1st Ave)

4pm-6:15pm: Stage entertainment, in front of Aggie Hall on 1st Ave.

6:30pm: Santa arrives to light up the town!

6:45pm: Kinsmen Parade all along 1st Ave down to Aggie Hall.

After the parade there is the big tree light up and a fireworks display that is usually pretty good, note to all: Do not bring pets downtown as it gets extremely busy downtown and dogs don't tend to like fireworks very much.
