Help Us Set a World Record at Jingle Bells Night

Jingle Bells NightJoin Coquitlam’s Park Spark team at Lafarge Lake on Friday, Dec. 20 from 7 – 8 p.m. and help us set a world record for 2,000 voices singing Jingle Bells.

Multiple caroling groups will be stationed around the lake, filling Town Centre Park with the sound of holiday cheer. These caroling groups include Choral Connections, Cuties Ukulele Circle, 5th Coquitlam Scouts, CA Church, Heidi Tsui and friends and more.

At 7:30 p.m., everyone will stop where they are and join in a community sing-a-long of Jingle Bells. We encourage event-goers to bring their own jingle bells and dress in their best holiday attire. Be sure to snap a selfie with the festive roving mascots around the lake.
