Annual festivals and parades of lights are a marker of the holiday tradition

Organizers of the Greater Victoria Festival Society and other local organizations recently announced the return of a variety of beloved annual Christmas events, such as the Parade of Lights on December 5th.

Careful planning has taken place alongside the Vancouver Island Health Authority so that the return of these events can be confirmed, according to a statement.

Kelly Kurta, executive director of the Greater Victoria Festival Society, said bringing events like these back to the community means working together. “Cross-promote, share resources and showcase our communities as a whole – together we’ll light up the city. “

The 39th Peninsula Co-op Santa Claus Parade of Lights will take place on November 27 starting at 5:30 p.m. from Belleville and Government Street.

The Island Equipment Owners Association light truck convoy and food drive will take place on December 4 in the Breakwater District, Ogden Point, starting at 5:45 p.m.

The Esquimalt Parade of Lights is scheduled to take place on December 5 at 5 p.m. in Esquimalt and Canteen Road, continuing on Esquimalt Road to Esquimalt Plaza.
