Light Up the Hills Founder, Gerry Kentner, envisioned a tree covered in sparkling lights to be shared with the whole community. A "Tree of Hope".

Yes!   The lights are on for our 15th annual winter festival of lights,  December 1 to January 15 from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. every day!

Once again for 2022, we will be holding our annual December 1st Ignition Opening Ceremony.  It all starts at 6:30pm in Dominion Gardens Park in Georgetown.  There will be free hotdogs and hot chocolate as well as special visits from Santa and Obie the CN Safety train.  St Francis's Grade  4,5,6 choir and Sweet & Salty acapella group will be there as well singing songs of the season.  Ignition is at 7:00pm and the event runs until 8:00pm.  There is lots to do for the whole family and the event is free.  

This year the lights will be lit for everyone to enjoy at Dominion Gardens Park in Georgetown, Shelagh Law Parkette in Glen Williams and Acton Sports Park in Acton. As always, there is no charge to visit any of the parks and you do not need to make a reservation. 

We appreciate your support of this annual community celebration.  You can support us by purchasing draw tickets  (check out the awesome prizes to be won!) , ordering or renewing a Memory Ball to remember a loved one or by making a donation to Light Up the Hills.
