Memories of By-gone Days
Inaugural Winter Festival CandleLight Stroll held in support of Project S.H.A.R.E.'s Christmas Basket Program

November 23, 2006

Niagara Falls, ON - The Winter Festival of Lights is proud to present the inaugural Winter Festival CandleLight Stroll being held on Saturday, December 9th beginning at 7:00 pm.

The stroll begins at City Hall Centennial Square where His Worship, Mayor R. Ted Salci will be joined by Miss Canada, Rachel Jaillet, to light the official candle. The journey then continues towards Christ Anglican Church on Zimmerman Ave. and continues back onto Queen Street. At various stops along the stroll, participants will enjoy the charms of the season with the sounds of choirs, a live Nativity Scene performed by Queensway Free Methodist Church, a visit with Santa Claus for the little ones (don't forget their letters), the harmonies of the Singing Saints Barbershop quartet and the charming tones of the Niagara Falls Bell Ringing Choir.

You can also sample goodies, hot drinks and traditional fare from bygone days. Take a horse and carriage ride with your sweetheart, family and friends, and enjoy the romance and simple magic of a timeless evening. The Winter Festival CandleLight Stroll is sure to become a Christmas holiday tradition in Niagara Falls.

Candles may be purchased for a $2 donation to Project S.H.A.R.E. and non-perishable food will also be collected for its Christmas Basket Campaign.
