2014 Christmas Light Up

View Photos

Families filled Veterans Memorial Park on Saturday, December 6 for the eighth annual Langford Light-up. Most of those in attendance stayed after the giant Christmas tree came to life with a dazzling array of lights to enjoy the Island Equipment Owners convoy of decorated trucks that drove by as part of a food drive for local food banks.

Langford Mayor Stew Young said the event is a great way to enjoy a free hot dog and hot chocolate and get into the Christmas spirit.  “It’s a nice opportunity for neighbours to gather and exchange holiday greetings and the kids really like seeing  the tree light up and Santa’s arrival on the Langford Trolley,” Mayor Young said.

Organizers said the event seems to grow in popularity each year, and thanked a dedicated group for making the event a success. Volunteers from Langford City Hall, Langford Fire and Rescue, Coast Environmental Services, Patricia Wade Design, the West Shore Community Band, Starbucks Western Communities, West Shore Parks and Recreation, Victoria Municipal Maintenance and Contracting and Clark’s Taekwondo joined crafters and vendors from Goldstream Station Market in providing food, fun, entertainment and services.

Those in attendance donated $709 to the Goldstream Food Bank, up significantly from $287 last year. Donations in food items also saw a spike with more than 710 pounds collected to help stock the food bank’s shelves, an increase of more than 200 pounds from last year’s total. That says a lot about the kind of community Langford is, not to mention the kindness of Langford residents.
