Many families bundled up the children for a stunning stroll by the lake during the 23rd Festival of Lights from November 30th – January 8th. The festival provides a great outing for the whole family every Christmas season, magically lighting up Spencer Smith Park. There was something for everyone to appreciate from Santa taking off in his sleigh, to the Bears Blues Band and the majestic Eiffel Tower, just to name a few of the 60 arrangements. A mere dozen displays in 1995 has grown each year to the present ‘must-see’ extravaganza.
