Christmas Light Up Friday

Come help countdown the season of festive lights at Peachland’s annual Christmas Light Up this Friday, December 1 in Heritage Park.

We’ll parade down Beach Avenue, gather and sing in the Park before counting down to the official Light Up of Heritage Park and Beach Avenue. You’ll enjoy a huge bonfire, carnival games and activities, a photo booth and live entertainment. Hot dogs and hot chocolate, available by donation, will be served up by the Peachland Rotary Club and the Peachland Lions Club and the Peachland Ambassadors will be handing out popcorn. A Fireworks Show will light up the sky starting at 6:30.

Just before the Light Up, the Peachland Boys and Girls Club is holding a children’s party with face painting and more and the Art Gallery is hosting an open house with refreshments. Check these great events out and then join the walking Glow Parade from there heading to Heritage Park in time for the sing-a-long.

Some traffic impacts from the event can be expected. Beach Avenue, between 1st and 6th Streets, will be closed to traffic from 5:45 to 6:30 pm with local traffic detours available via Waldo Way (back alley.

Don’t miss this brilliant start to the festive season in Peachland…pssst, Santa may visit!
