Summerland lit up the streets and the sky Friday night.

The 32nd annual Festival of Lights filled the streets of the city’s downtown, with people enjoying the local businesses, live music and the light-up an approximately 35 ft Christmas tree.

This year, Memorial Park got an extra glow to it, with one of the trees near the Cenotaph strung up with lights to fit the season.

The Festival of Lights is one of Summerland’s biggest events of the year, drawing thousands of people from across the Okanagan to count down the seconds before the lights turned on at 7 p.m. with fireworks to follow shortly after.

Despite Mayor Toni Boot’s admission for having wished for a little snow, the chill in the air did nothing to dissuade the crowds from coming out and having fun.
