Esquimalt lights up the holidays with parade, Santa

Dec. 8 family festivities and light up usher in holiday season

Esquimalt got into the holiday spirit this weekend with the 14th annual Celebration of Lights.

The free community event included a festive parade, visits with Santa, entertainment and the ever-popular Esquimalt Plaza light-up.

On Dec. 8 the parade crawled from Canteen Road down Esquimalt Road to finish at the Archie Browning Sports Centre where Christmas festivities continued into the evening.
