It’s time for the Colwood Christmas Light Up! Friends and neighbours get to visit and reconnect, while children from local school choirs spread cheer with their musical performances.
Enjoy hot chocolate, hot dogs and baked treats provided by local businesses, and unique gifts for purchase from Coast Collective Art Centre. Kids can take part in craft activities while they wait for Santa to arrive on the fire truck!
Also don’t forget to vote for your favourite decorated tree by placing a food donation under your fave. After the holidays, the City of Colwood will plant the trees out in the community. The donations will be for the Goldstream Food Bank or the Christmas Backpack Project, which provides much needed supplies for people who have no home to go to this Christmas.
