Kitimat Light Up celebration set for November 22

A Light Up Kitimat festival will be held at Mountainview Square tomorrow evening.

The Kitimat Rotary Club and a number of community supports are planning to put a little extra pep in to Kitimat’s holiday season.

To that end, on November 22 there will be a Light Up Kitimat festival, which will be marked by a light up display at Mountainview Square in the evening, as well as holiday lights kicked in to high gear at the Heritage Park at the Chamber of Commerce and on the Christmas tree at the Public Safety Building.

Chair of the Light Up Kitimat committee Cheryl Rumley says it began in part when the club decided they wanted their gazebos at Heritage Park done up with lights.

At the same time at the fire hall Mark Zielinski was working on a plan to get the tree in front of their building re-lit too.

It all started to come together this past spring to make a light-up a community thing.

“The initiative basically started…with the Chamber of Commerce and the fire hall association, and the Rotary Club,” said Rumley. “The idea is just for it to be a coordinated, community event for November 22.”

Hot chocolate, caroling, and other refreshments will coincide with the festival from 7 to 9 p.m.

Zielinski hopes that this event on November 22 will turn in to a long-term celebration in Kitimat, and he said they’ve looked at Smithers and Houston as models for small-town light-ups
