Lights will be shining bright at City Hall. On December 5th, the City of Yellowknife will be celebrating Christmas Lights Across Canada. The annual free event will be filled with holiday festivities. Carols will be sung by the Mildred Hall School choir beginning at 4:45 p.m. on the steps of City Hall. At around 5 p.m., Mayor Alty will signal for all of the lights surrounding City Hall and the Somba K’e Civic Plaza to be turned on. This includes the large tree in the centre of the amphitheatre.
Similar celebrations are held on the same day in capital cities across Canada as part of a national event coordinated by Canadian Heritage. The celebration in Yellowknife’s city hall will be followed by festivities indoors at the Legislative Assembly.
