Installation of seasonal lights planned along Alberni Highway in Parksville

City crews to work on Thursday, Oct. 28, from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

It’s time once again to trim the trees with lights in Parksville.

On Thursday, Oct. 28, seasonal lights will be installed on the trees along the Alberni Highway, where city crews will work from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. with several trucks deployed.

For this reason, parking will be extremely limited along the Alberni Highway. Crews will work in unison, and once the lights have been installed parking spaces will be made available.
