Come downtown to celebrate the holiday season with the annual lighting spectacular, Red Deer Lights the Night on Nov. 19th. The event is presented by Stantec and hosted by The City of Red Deer, Red Deer Public Library and the Downtown Business Association.

“This event has become a family favourite in Red Deer and we’re looking forward to its return,” said Annette Scheper, community and program facilitator. “There’s something about those twinkling lights that sparks a joyful holiday spirit in kids and adults alike.”

Red Deerians are invited to take a stroll through the colourful lights in City Hall Park, visit the vendors in the winter market, and cozy up in the warming tent while enjoying some free popcorn and hot chocolate. There will be crafts and games for the kids and, of course, a visit from Santa.

The event will take place in City Hall Park, on Ross Street and in the

Red Deer Public Library from 4-7 p.m.

“We’re excited about this opportunity to support an event that brings the community together,” said Russ Wlad, Stantec senior vice president. “Community is at the heart of what we do at Stantec and this partnership allows us to participate in an event that brings families together to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season.”

Guests are reminded that pets are not permitted in City Hall Park or the event site. Parking is available at Sorenson Station, 4830 48th St., P4 at 49th Ave. and 49th St., and P8 behind Gaetz Memorial United Church.
