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.
