The Christmas spirit is returning to Highstreet FV, offering plenty of festive fun for all ages throughout the holiday season.
From a dazzling tree-lighting ceremony to light up the night’s sky with thousands of spectacular lights to live music, sizzling entertainment and of course –a chance to shop til’ you drop — there’s so much to see and do before the big jolly man in the red suit pops out of your fireplace.
Here are 3 events coming to Highstreet FV to take your clan.
1. A family-friendly, kid-crazy Holiday Show
When: Saturday, November 22 at 5 p.m.
Highlights include performances from 100+ local dancers and entertainers, including an 80-piece marching band, plus the Official Tree Lighting, complete with a 60-foot tree lit by Santa Claus himself.
2. Tree Lighting Ceremony
When: Daily at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., from Nov. 23 to 24.
One of the largest Christmas trees in Canada, Highstreet’s tree rivals that of New York City’s iconic Rockefeller Center. The Official Tree Lighting will be preceded by an eight-minute animated light show, utilizing 6,000 individually controlled tri-colour LED nodes, six snow-making machines and plenty of cheer.
According to Markus Griesser, General Manager of Highstreet, the Holiday Show promises to bring the magic of the season alive.
“We’re thrilled to once again raise the bar for holiday merriment with an evening of celebration, performances and entertainment unlike any other in the region,” said Griesser.
“Ever since we opened our doors one year ago, the goal has been to provide a truly world-class experience. The Holiday Show brings that sentiment into the Christmas season, while thanking our guests for their loyalty.”
