FOL work party Jan. 18

The work party starts at 9 a.m., and anyone who would like to help is asked to meet at the upper parking lot at 49th Parallel Grocery.

It’s almost time to unplug another successful Festival of Lights.

The lights will turn off after Sunday, Jan. 11, and the Festival of Lights (FOL) committee is planning a community work party to take down the lights and decorations for Sunday, Jan. 18.

The work party starts at 9 a.m., and anyone who would like to help is asked to meet at the upper parking lot at 49th Parallel Grocery.

“This year has been a really great Light Up,” says FOL committee member Duck Paterson. “The FOL committee thinks that there have been more tour buses going through town during the six weeks than what we’ve seen before. Also, with having more clear nights, the visitors walking downtown have been considerably more than we’ve had before. Our committee is very proud of how Festival has made Ladysmith ‘more visible’ to the outside world, and we want to thank the many, many volunteers who have put it together and continue to work very hard.”
