Festival of Lights Thanks and Why Only 2 Trees?

Festival of Lights Wrap Up

trees

A big thank you to the hundreds who braved the rain to celebrate with us at this year’s Festival of Lights! Thanks to our crew of volunteers who made it all happen. Thanks to our performers, The S.P.A.C.E., Pegasus Studios, FireGuy, and the east end music project choir (who were unfortunately rained out, but we’re hoping they’ll be back for a rousing sing-along again next year). And a big thank you to our sponsors who helped make it all happen: Sugar Moon, Trust Realty Group, our local branch of the BMO Bank of MontrealCouncillor Mary-Margaret McMahon, the nooks and Celena’s Bakery.

And a big shout out to everyone who brought food and money for Centre 55‘s food drive to feed hungry families in our neighbourhood. We beat last year’s collection haul, filling our big container and then some!

For those of you who were wondering why we decorated less trees than in previous years, we’re now only allowed to decorate trees with a dedicated electrical source. We were able to add electricity to one tree this year and we’ll keep adding it to trees next year to expand the light show. But don’t those two trees look fantastic?

See you next year!
