Light up George Lane Park

Friday, December 7 at 5 p.m. 

The lights will be officially ‘turned on’ prior to the parade, with ceremonies getting under way at 5:00 p.m. at the entrance to George Lane Park. The Lions Club of High River will be on hand with hot dogs and hot chocolate, and there is caroling and other activities before the switch is thrown!

The Stampede Stage will be set up on the corner of 4 Ave. & 1 Street S.W. (just north of the Museum of the Highwood) with entertainment beginning shortly after 6 p.m. until the start of the Parade and following the Parade until about 8:30 p.m.

Many local businesses will be open late so you can find those special gifts!

Plus, Santa will be in the Museum of the Highwood following the parade, so bring the kids and your camera!
