Candlelight Parade Dec. 2

A by-donation shuttle service is being offered this year

The 28th annual Candlelight Parade will be streaming through Mission Dec. 2.

The largest nighttime parade in B.C., this Mission Regional Chamber of Commerce event boasts over 1,000 participants and more than 75 floats from throughout the Lower Mainland.

More than 13,000 spectators come downtown to enjoy the holiday lights and sounds each year as the parade wends along First Avenue through to the Cedar Connector.

A parking and shuttle service will be offered this year at the Mission Raceway. The parking is by donation, and your family will be shuttled to the Mission Hills Shopping Centre. Funds raised will be split between the Mission’s three secondary school dry grads. Shuttle services will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m., and after the parade from 9:30 to 10:30 p.m.

“We are excited to offer this new service as part of the parade,” states Phil Hope, Candlelight Parade committee chair. “The parade has grown to such a great event; we want to make sure that families can get there safely with minimal trouble.”

Interested in entering a float? There is still time. All you need is lights, holiday music and plenty of holiday spirit. There is no entry fee Contact the Mission Chamber at 604-826-6914 for more information, or go to
