VIDEO: Cold winds don’t stop Festival of Lights

A strong wind and cold temperatures are likely the cause of a low turnout for the annual Festival of Lights in downtown Terrace tonight (Dec. 7). But that didn’t stop many families from dropping by and having a good time with a singalong by the fire, a bowl of chili courtesy the Salvation Army and a quick children’s tour of a Thornhill fire truck. Xander’s Coffee was full most of the night partly for the cookie decorating activities enjoyed by the kids, and partly for the charm of the place and that central heating system. The festivities were scheduled to wrap up at 7 p.m.
