Celebration of Lights Extended

Tuesday, December 29, 2015 @ 3:55 AM

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.
