Celebration of Lights Extended
Prince George, B.C. – The Railway and Forestry Museum isn’t ready to pull the plug on the Celebration of Lights.
The 100,000 light display that was supposed to end on Christmas Eve, has been extended through to the 30th.
In addition to the light display, there’s the Christmas Village set out in the accessible CN Russell House, a bonfire, food, hot beverages and rides on the mini rail.
The Museum was gifted the light display from the City of Prince George, which had previously set up the display on Connaught Hill . That practice ended last year as City Staff were up to their elbows in prepping for the Canada Winter Games. So, the museum borrowed the display last year and charged admission as a means of a fundraiser. This year, the City gave the entire display , which was purchased for $220 thousand dollars several years ago, to the Museum. The City’s actual original cost for the display was significantly offset by funding from the Province and Initiatives Prince George.
Celebration of lights is open from 4-7 tonight and tomorrow night.
