Festival Lights The Night – Christmas Lights in Red Deer

(Please click on the above images in the gallery to view full size.)

On November 22, 2014 downtown Red Deer (Alberta, Canada) was the site for “Festival Lights the Night”, a celebration for the start of the festive season including the lighting of two very large Christmas trees.

Originally I wasn’t going to post the pictures from the event as it was hard to get images of lights without crowds in the pictures. After glancing through the images a second time I decided that perhaps the crowds made the pictures and gave context to the event being  well attended.

It was a great evening. We saw trees lit, heard a band, saw some mascots, enjoyed the lights, and saw a live nativity. Luckily we live within walking distance so we were also able to incorporate a rather brisk walk.

I especially like the picture of the nativity as the scene has been Canadianized……the shepherd is wearing snowpants….very practical and a little bit less traditional too.
