Light up the Heights
12:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Hastings & Carleton
‘Tis the season for shopping and celebrating the re-launch of Light up the Heights in its brand-new format! With a focus on shopping locally for the holidays, the Heights Merchants Association invites community members and friends to celebrate with us on December 7, for Light up the Heights.
As carollers stroll along Hastings Street, the Man in the Red Suit will be visiting merchants with his helpers while Heights merchants offer holiday specials all day long. Light up the Heights will also line up with a regional Buy Local Week (by LOCO BC), which runs from Decemeber 2 to 8, that encourages shoppers to shop in their communities for the holidays.
From noon to 5 p.m., carollers, Santa and his elves will be walking along Hastings Street spreading Christmas cheer and at 4:45 p.m. everyone will gather at the Burnaby Fire Hall (Hastings & Carleton) for the lighting ceremony. Come watch the magic of the twinkling tree lights with Santa, his elves, and the sounds of the holiday season.
