Residents of the Border City will be getting a light show in the coming Christmas season.
On Thursday, December 22, the second annual Parade of Lights will be taking place in the city. The event, which first took place last December, is set to kick off once again along its same route through Lloydminster.
Organizer Ryan LeBlanc sent out a news release earlier this week, detailing some of the changes set for 2016. With donated funds from the previous parade sent to the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, Leblanc indicated that this year’s parade will be raising money for the development of a pediatric unit at the Lloydminster Hospital.
“It is something new coming to Lloydminster and we are very excited to be a part of it,” said LeBlanc, in the release.
“The organizers are working on an expanded program for the gathering after the parade returns to the Lloydminster Exhibition grounds. Stay tuned for details on that.”
LeBlanc also told 106.1 The Goat that the event is being planned via committee this year.
Anyone wishing to participate in the parade was directed to contact LeBlanc for entry forms, with a cutoff point of December 19.
