Trinity Street Christmas Lights 2016

8 Dec

We see that many people have been searching for information on the Annual Trinity Street Christmas Light Festival.   This is one in which East Van residents of the 2400 – 2900 blocks of Trinity Street put up an amazing display of Christmas lights. Residents hosted Winter Walks and raised funds for local charities such as Kiwassa Neighbourhood House  The Trinity Street Christmas Light Festival started over 15 years ago to lift residents’ spirits after two elderly women were killed in their homes in the neighbourhood.  The event  has brought thousands of people in from all corners of the City and was a victim of its own success.  Unfortunately for residents, damage was done to vehicles of residents in the area, people didn’t heed the residents repeated requests to park and walk in, so the official festival has been cancelled. You can learn more about the cancellation of the festival by visiting CBC’s story featured last Christmas.  Now having said this, many residents are still putting up their Christmas lights which are on display for all to see.  Should you wish to see the lights, PLEASE respect the residents that live in the area and park and walk in.  Of course, if you wish to make an online donation to Kiwassa Neighbourhood House, it is a great community resource providing much needed programs.
