Get ready for holiday lights spreading throughout Summerland

Summerland at its brightest

Summerland is ready to shine big and bright for the holiday season, as the 2021 Light Up Summerland event will be kicking off its first official night.

Starting at 6 p.m. on Saturday, Light Up is inviting the community to tune into watch their livestream of the official light up on their Facebook page.

From there, the Drive By Light Up event will kick off at 7 p.m. until 9 p.m., with plenty of decorate homes and businesses to view.

With three Saturdays full of holiday cheer, the Downtown streets will host family entertainment, Letter’s to Santa and activities with the 'Shop Local Saturday' from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is also the 'Shop Local, Shop Late,' which encourages downtown shopping from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Dec. 11 and 18.

Alongside the Drive By Light Up event, the Sip n’ Shop, Bottle Neck Drive Winter Series and the Art Council's "Seasons Sparkles" events will run on following Saturdays. The events take place Dec 4, 11 and 18.

Summerland’s iconic festival has had to work to adapt their event in another year of pandemic restrictions before the holiday season hit.

Grab the Drive by map by downloading or printing online at summerlandlightup.com or pick one up at the starting point, located at 10116 Quinpool Road.

Attendees are encouraged to vote for their favourite residential and business light display. All the details are included on the map.
