Help Coquitlam Jingle All the Way

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Wednesday, December 17, 2014 – Be a part of Coquitlam history as we aim to break the record for the largest group of people singing Jingle Bells together.

Join Coquitlam’s Park Spark team on Monday, December 22nd at 7:00 p.m. at the Innovation Centre (1207 Pinetree Way). The singing will take place outdoors on the plaza between the Innovation Centre and the Evergreen Cultural Centre. Look for the Park Spark tent and flags.

The first 100 participants will receive a free jingle bell.

The current record for the largest group singing Jingle Bells while ringing bells is 488 people, held by Albany, New York (according to Recordsetter.com). 

Coquitlam’s Jingle Bells record attempt will take place rain or shine, and participants are encouraged to wear festive attire including holiday hats, ugly sweaters, and jingle bells.

While the singing is expected to last approximately 30 minutes, the event provides a great opportunity to visit the holiday lights display around Lafarge Lake and City Hall. For a sneak peek of the lights, visit http://bitly.com/coquitlamlights.
