Festival of Lights 2023 – November 30th

From the last Thursday in November until the second Sunday in January, Ladysmith is ignited with the life of thousands of twinkling Christmas lights. Drive or walk down First Avenue (you may be able to shop) and take it all in to fill your cup with Christmas spirit.

The Light Up parade is on for Thursday, November 30th, 2023!

Take a drive through the 2020 lights!

Just wanted to say that I’ve been flooded with positive comments for the Light Up event, the new lights and the new look of the Chuck Perrin tree. I don’t remember a kick off like that EVER. Was so great and our family felt so fortunate to be able to be in the crowd and just enjoy the energy and ‘all the feels’. Seeing the volunteers out the next morning tuning everything up is such a testament to your group and Ladysmith as a community. You should all be very proud.

All the very best, Aaron
Mayor – Town of Ladysmith
