Last Friday, November 18, 2016 the 16th annual was held at Galt Gardens to kick off the Christmas Season of Joy, Love and Giving! And what a kick off! $400 was donated to the Lethbridge Food Bank at the LRNA Hot Chocolate and Smokie stands! Thank you Lethbridge!
Message from the LRNA Events Chair, Kate Connolly:
Great job on Friday night! Many thanks to all helpers at Bright Lights Festival – including Peter Imhof and his two children, Bill Ginther and of course the efforts of all the LRNA Board members (and their families too)! It was a lot of hard work and a pretty frantic three hours of serving. We did a roaring trade in both hot chocolate (1,000 free cups served!) and smokies (550 sold!). Thanks Kenny for the use of your BBQ and Jon Kerber for the use of the much needed urns for the hot chocolate!
London Road Neighbourhood Association will be grilling up delicious smokies for sale at the 16th Annual BRIGHT LIGHTS FESTIVAL this Friday, November 18, 2016 at the Galt Gardens. All proceeds from the sale of these smokies will be given to the Lethbridge Food Bank. FREE HOT CHOCOLATE will also be served!
Come and visit Santa, Eat, Drink and Be Merry! Be dazzled by the lights, entertained by the free Christmas movies, go for a hayride and support our local participating businesses and get a start on your Holiday Shopping!
The fun starts at 6:30 pm. It will be a Holly Jolly time! See you there!
Kick off the Christmas season with a guided tour of Annandale House (1280 4 Avenue S) on Friday, December 2nd and Saturday December 3rd between 6 pm and 8 pm. Come and see all the Christmas lights and elaborate decorations – including the train set and Christmas village on the outside and two train sets and 7 Christmas trees on the inside!
Entrance is by donation ($5 per person suggested – and proceeds will go towards Christmas Hampers for YWCA Harbour House families).
There will be free hot chocolate and Christmas treats to enjoy.
Children are welcome and it is free for them to join the tours.
Please note that there are many stairs in this beautiful historic home and therefore it is not wheelchair accessible.
Don`t miss out on the fun! Sleigh rides, great food and Santa Claus! Free hot chocolate too! See you there!
