Yellowknife Prepares for National Holiday Lights Event

The City of Yellowknife has given out an official schedule of events for next week’s “Winter Lights Across Canada” celebration.

The event is an annual initiative lead by Government of Canada, where monuments and important sites across the country are illuminated in a display of holiday lights on the same night. This event brings people together, allowing Canadians to participate and join in the spirit of the season. The City of Yellowknife and the Northwest Territories Legislative Assembly are excited to take part in this festive tradition.

Members of the public are invited to come enjoy the festivities. The schedule will take place in Yellowknife as follows:

4:45PM: Residents are invited to gather at the Somba K’e amphitheater and watch as the dazzling display of lights illuminate the park for the first time this season.
