Get those lights on, Kitimat

Brought to you by the Northern Sentinel and the Snowflake Seniors’ Centre

If you see vehicles crammed with seniors prowling through your neighbourhood in the dark between December 8 and 15, don’t be surprised – they will be out choosing this year’s Christmas light display winners again!

The Snowflake Seniors’ Centre seniors and the Northern Sentinel are running the third, annual Lights On Kitimat contest, choosing a home which has the most spectacular Christmas display.

The seniors will narrow the displays down to a first, second and third-place winner, whose homes will be photographed and the photos published in a colourful feature in the Northern Sentinel that will be out on the streets on Thursday, December 19.

All you have to do is make sure your Christmas lights are on after 6 p.m. every night from Sunday, December 8, through to Sunday, December 15. The seniors will be looking for the most colourful, brightest and creative displays.
