The lights may be lit, but the public is invited to the B.C. Legislature grounds on Victoria’s Inner Harbour for the annual Christmas Lights Across Canada celebrations.
Postponed from Nov. 24 due to demonstrations at the provincial capital, the 37th annual event is now set for Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. near the main staircase.
The festivities include musical performances by the Victoria Children’s Choir and James Bay Community Chorus. Seasonal treats will be provided outdoors. Speakers include Songhees Elder Clarence (Butch) Dick; Raj Chouhan, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, and Grace Lore, MLA for Victoria-Beacon Hill.
