Light up the Heights

Thank you for joining and celebrating with us!

Here are some photos from Light Up the Heights 2018

‘Tis the season for shopping and celebrating, and there’s no better place to do so than on the bustling sidewalks of the Heights!

With a focus on shopping locally for the holidays, the Heights Merchants Association hosts a sidewalk festival, with carolers, the Man in the Red Suit and his helpers, all while Heights merchants offer holiday specials all day long.

Join us as we Light up the Heights along Hastings Street at our Trees Lighting Ceremony at 4:30 p.m. at Burnaby Fire Hall No. 5 (4211 Hastings Street). Enjoy cookies and hot chocolate with City dignitaries, festive characters, holiday carols, and Santa Claus himself!
