Light Up Okotoks November 20 2015

Light up Okotoks

Don’t miss out on Okotoks most popular family event “Light Up Okotoks” this coming Friday, November 20th. The family fun will start at 5.30pm in Elizabeth Street, North Railway Street and McRae Street.

This is my favorite family event of the year and it looks like the recent snow fall will mean it will look very Christmassy. Light Up Okotoks is not the same without snow and it feels like Okotoks is transformed into Winter Wonderland.

Starting at 5.30pm you can wonder up and down the streets that are closed to vehicles and enjoy the Christmas spirit. You will find Santa and his helpers waiting to see the children outside the Okotoks Art Gallery.

The lighting of the Christmas tree lights will be at 7pm and you can enjoy festive music being played at the Plaza with live performances. Throughout the night you can catch a ride on a six horse drawn sleigh and take in the sights of Elizabeth Street. You will be able to spot the three food trucks that are on standby to receive food donations. You can also donate money for the Okotoks food bank.

The evening ends at 9pm with the traditional firework spectacular that is created by John Collins.

A detailed map and itinerary for the event can be found here at www.okotoks.ca and you can pick up a print copy at the Okotoks Recreation Centre
