Ladysmith all set for Light Up night

Festival of Lights begins with Light Up parade and community events Thursday, Nov. 24

Ladysmith’s signature event of the season is this week.

The Ladysmith Festival of Lights’ Light Up night takes place Thursday, Nov. 24, and organizers are promising fun and entertainment for the whole family.

“The spirit of Ladysmith shines brightly through the Festival of Lights,” said Millie Stirling, executive director of the Ladysmith Chamber of Commerce. “For our town to attract the volume of people that it does for the Light Up event is remarkable.”

The activities begin at 3 p.m. with a Christmas craft and artisan fair at Aggie Hall, and at 4 p.m. street entertainment will start up and food concessions will open. Entertainment on two stages – one downtown and at one at Aggie Hall – will go from 4-6:15 p.m. Santa Claus himself will be in Ladysmith to turn on the lights at 6:30 p.m. and the Light Up parade begins at 6:45 p.m. Following the end of the parade, there will be a light up of Bob Stuart Park and the Chuck Perrin memorial tree, as well as fireworks sponsored by the Ladysmith and District Credit Union.
