Come out and celebrate the 11th Season of Light Up the Hills! 


Bring your friends and family out for a fun evening of entertainment, treats, and lots of community spirit! "Ignition" is held in Georgetown, Acton & Glen Williams on DECEMBER 1ST each year.  All 3 locations offer different entertainment and experiences!

In Georgetown, at Dominion Gardens park, festivities start at 5:30 pm.  This is the largest celebration with entertainment, free hot chocolate, free Hot Dogs, Outdoor Movies, Santa Claus, and new this year a "Selfie Booth."  Large winter displays and trees throughout the park light up at 7:00 pm.

In Acton, all the fun starts at 5:30 as well.  A smaller celebration with great entertainment, free hot chocolate and cookies as well as free hot dogs, plus Santa!!

The most intimate and smaller crowd can be found at Glen Williams with singing and free hot chocolate.   Glen Williams celebration starts at 6:30pm

All locations have a large "Tree of Hope" decorated with thousands of lights (unfortunately in 2018 Glen Williams will have a spotlights signing on it instead of lights as a new tree was recently replanted there).


At 7:00PM all the lights will be turned on! Not only will the trees light up but so will the eyes of children and adults alike - it's truly wonderful! Walk around the park with a hot chocolate and other treats and take in all the spectacular displays. Santa Claus joins us to see the lights go on, too! Join us on December 1 and help us "Light Up The Hills"! 


NEW for 2018! Gerry & Lori's What's Cookin' Christmas Cookbook.  Only $5.00 gets you some of Gerry and Lori's favourite Christmas recipes in a beautiful little booklet, and these ladies sure know how to cook, bake, roast, saute and everything in between. All proceeds from the sale of these cookbooks go towards Light Up The Hills.
