Gary Bender and Wade Addy of Bailey Electric put lights on the Christmas tree at Harbour Quay

Businesses at Harbour Quay, Kingsway Crossing and the Carmoor Block in Uptown Port Alberni are celebrating their annual LightUp event tonight, Nov. 25, with a Christmas tree lighting at Harbour Quay, a visit from Santa Claus and late-night shopping.

The official tree lighting will take place at 6 p.m. Santa Claus will be located at Main Artery, and families are welcome to bring their own cameras to take Santa photos.

Shops will be open until 8 p.m. The Alberni Aquarium and Stewardship Centre is offering free admission and also collecting non-perishable food donations for the Salvation Army Food Bank. Kids can make a rainbow fish ornament for the aquarium’s tree, and they will also have popcorn.
