Highstreet holds fourth annual tree lighting and holiday event

Celebration takes place Saturday, Nov. 19, starting at 5 p.m.

The fourth annual tree lighting and holiday event takes place this Saturday at Highstreet in Abbotsford.

Highstreet shopping centre holds its fourth annual official tree lighting and holiday event on Saturday, Nov. 19, starting at 5 p.m.

Highlights include the arrival of Santa Clause, the lighting of a 65-foot Christmas tree, Rudolph, Frosty the Snowman, Spandy Andy the dancing elf, a 40-piece marching band, a team of festive dancers and a magical snowfall.

Highstreet’s tree rivals that of New York City’s iconic Rockefeller Center and is one of the largest in Canada.

The multimedia light display uses 6,000 tri-colour LED bulbs, set to holiday musical favourites during the 30-minute show.

“We’re thrilled to make this an annual affair for the entire family unlike any other holiday experience in the region,” said manager Mark Griesser.

Holiday shows continue at Highstreet – located at 3122 Mt. Lehman Rd. – every Saturday at 5 p.m. until Dec. 17. Visit highstreetfv.com for more information.

Also this weekend, Santa arrives at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre (32900 South Fraser Way) this Saturday at 11 a.m.
