Organizers are hard at work on the Kermode Festival of Lights, which is set to go Saturday, Dec. 1 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at George Little Park.

Terrace and District Chamber of Commerce is planning a Kermode mini parade through the park, free family activities, music, hayrides and a Parade of Lights down Lakelse Ave.

“We had thought we had another group that was going to organize the parade, but at the last minute we discovered that they had opted not do the parade due to the complications of the logistics,” wrote Carol Fielding in an email calling for parade entries.

Last year’s parade was cancelled because of poor participation numbers, and this year the call for entries is late, so Fielding is asking interested participants to contact her as soon as possible.

“In order to make the closures viable we need at least 15-plus entries,” she said. Nechako Northcoast’s traffic control crew that work for their Bill-a-Bong division will be providing support with street closures and traffic control.

And a float isn’t neccessary. It could be the company van or a walking group entry. “Anything goes as long as it is about the holiday season,” she said.

“Make sure you plan for the cold and wet…although I have sent a request to Mother Nature to help us out this year,” Fielding continued.
