Ladysmith Christmas Light Up - an Island Spectacle

Last night we drove up the Island to Ladysmith to witness their 22nd annual Chistmas Festival of Lights. It is during the last week of November every year. I suggest you take it in at least once. Thousands of people line the main street in Ladysmith starting around 5 pm. There is a Spaghetti Dinner in one hall and a craft fair in another hall. There are a couple of entertainment stages and the music is piped along main street. Santa arrives at 6:30 to pull the switch and almost instantaneously, the entire street lights up with thousands of lights. They havea 50/50 draw to raise funds. Then the parade starts. The night ends with a pretty fantastic fireworks display. All along main street there are food vendors and people selling lights of various sorts. It is a really festive environment. The mini donuts and the hot chocolate concessions seemed to be the most popular. Check it our next year. Tomorrow night is the Light up in the City of Victoria. See you there.
