So we were talking a little bit today about WHEN you officially kick off your holiday season. Is it the first Christmas movie you watch, the first Christmas song you hear…do you wait until a certain day? If you’re still waiting for the Christmas spark to be lit in your life, you need to check out the “All is Bright” light up festival on 124st this Saturday!! Check out some of the fun from last year
“The businesses of 124 Street and High Street invite you to our annual light up festival on Saturday, November 25 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. This unique event celebrates the winter season in Edmonton; lighting up the night through illumination, fun, and live entertainment. The festival is free to attend and everyone is welcome!
The main festival site is located on 124 Street between 102 Ave and Jasper Ave, with activities extending north on 124 Street to 108 Avenue.”
Best part is it’s supposed to be nice (3 degrees is predicted as I’m writing this) so you can be comfortable outside all night! There will be music starting on the main stage at 4:00, the official light up ceremony kicks off at 5, then the music goes until about 9:00!
There’s so much to do besides the music and official light up, they’ve got a digital scavenger hunt set up for you.
- To participate, you’ll need to download their FREE app and then follow the instructions.
- The answers to the questions will all be various businesses located along 124 Street, between 102 Avenue and 108 Avenue.
- Those guests who get all of the answers and locations correct, will be entered into our grand prize draw. You’ll have a chance to win one of two fabulous prizes. Winners will be selected at the end of the festival and contacted. Trust us, you’ll not want to miss out!
- Here’s a link to the free app
Some of the businesses will have events and activities for you to do as well (and you get to warm up inside in case it’s colder than predicted) Everything you need to know is on their event website, click here
