The Bright Friday Parksville christmas light-up took place Nov. 24

Parksville got a whole lot brighter on Friday evening, Nov. 24 during the Bright Friday Parksville Downtown Christmas Light-Up.

Organized by the Parksville Downtown Business Association, PDBA President Melisa Beatty and Parksville Mayor Marc Lefebvre threw the switch to light up the giant sequoia tree at the east end of Morison Avenue to start the event.

The Mount Arrowsmith Pipe Band, with many members decked out with Santa Claus hats and Christmas lights of their own, entertained a large crowd who enjoyed kettle popcorn, hot chocolate and ginger bread.

The Craig Bay Choristers came next, singing as Santa Claus himself arrived by Parksville Volunteer Fire Department fire truck. He and a helper handed out treats and glow sticks to an excited group of kids as the choristers continued to entertain everyone.
