It’s going to get bright on Dec. 10 in White Rock.

Featuring the lighting of a 20-foot tree with White Rock mayor Megan Knight and other council members at 5:40 p.m., the free event also includes a sing-a-long with the Gingerbread Men, a light-up dance performance by Xba Dance Group, a gingerbread cookie decorating station, an interactive light-up puzzle and snowball maze, a meet-and-greet with Santa Claus and Frozen’s Princess Elsa, among other attractions.

“This Saturday, join us for the tree lighting ceremony and holiday light display launch of Bright Walk in White Rock,” said Knight in a release that notes the display runs nightly until Jan. 8, 2023.

“It’s an exciting time in our community, and we invite attendees to enjoy an evening of free family-friendly festivities as White Rock’s waterfront lights up for the holiday season.”
