Help Coquitlam “Light the Hall” on Nov. 21

by Michelle Frilund |

COQUITLAM, BC, November 9, 2015 – Join the City of Coquitlam and presenting partner, Bold Properties, as they kick off the holiday season at Light the Hall on Saturday, November 21, 2015 from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.  

Thanks to the generous support of Bold Properties, the City of Coquitlam has been able to further enhance the popular Light the Hall event.

This free family event is held at Coquitlam City Hall (3000 Guildford Way) with activities throughout the afternoon, including crafts, photos with Santa, musical performances and a giant, inflatable snowglobe. The Coastal Sound Music choir will share a special performance of ’Twas the Night before Christmas just before we turn on the holiday lights. And at 5:00 p.m., Graham Myers of Second Storey Theatre will lead the countdown that will bring over 60,000 lights to life as we light up City Hall and Lafarge Lake.

After the Light the Hall event, visitors are encouraged to make their way from City Hall across Guildford Way to the seasonal light display at Lafarge Lake. With over 60,000 lights and a number of unique illuminated features, this is one of the largest free seasonal displays in the Lower Mainland. Coquitlam’s Parks crews take pride in making this display bigger and better every year and there are some new additions you won’t want to miss. The lights at Lafarge Lake will be on from November 21 until the New Year, from dusk to midnight daily.

For more information about Light the Hall and our seasonal light display, including a video showing last year’s lights, visit www.coquitlam.ca/light. Tag your photos and posts with #CoquitlamLights.
