Mayor's Tree Lighting Ceremony at Tom Davies Square

Nov 17, 2023

Residents are invited to join Mayor Paul Lefebvre and members of Council for a short and festive tree lighting ceremony at 6 p.m. on Friday, December 1, in the courtyard of Tom Davies Square.

Join us as we mark the beginning of the holiday season with performances and complimentary hot chocolate and treats.

GOVA Transit will offer free transportation to those wanting to take part in the event. Upon boarding, simply let the bus operator know you’ll be attending the ceremony.

The Merry and Bright tree will be lit from December 1 until the week after Orthodox Christmas.

The Merry and Bright tree is an artificial spruce standing 26 feet tall and 12 feet in diameter. It is lit with 1,325 high-efficiency warm white LED bulbs which accomplish 80 per cent energy savings compared to traditional incandescent bulbs.
