Rupert light displays make for challenging decisions for Prince Rupert Special Events Society

One of Prince Rupert's most elaborate
and popular light displays was once again
found on Montgomery Crescent this year

As we prepare to ring out a never to be forgotten year  of 2020, some of the remarkable Christmas light displays seen around town will begin to fade from view, as Prince Rupert residents and businesses put away their decorations for another year.

This year meant for some changes for the Prince Rupert Special Events Society, with many of the popular annual events for the holidays put aside for a year owing to COVID.

However, the sprit of the season carried through with an individual theme through the Light Up the Town event, a well received call from Special Events for Rupert residents and businesses to share their light and decorative spirit.

Through December as the light displays went up, the submissions came in and as the year worked its way to its end Prince Rupert Special Events released their version of the Nice list, showcasing the three top residential and commercial displays in the city.

The Top Spot went to an always popular stop on the Christmas Seasons lights tour, with the Stegavig's residence on Montgomery, with a property not too far down Prince Rupert Boulevard on Heron Road claiming Second spot and a home on Eight Avenue East claiming the third spot.

For Businesses the community minded Good Time Games claimed top spot for their Second Avenue West display, Leanne's Pet Shop also on Second West was second and Prince Rupert Optometry on Third Avenue West was selected third.

The Grand Prize Winner of the Ocean Pacific Air Prince Rupert Harbour Tour went to Kayla Wesley.

You can review a pictorial of some of the displays from the Prince Rupert Special Events Society Facebook page.

As they head towards 2021, the local group that brings together many of the city's festivals and gatherings is hoping for a more normal year ahead, with a note on their Social Media Feed to watch for updates on plans for the Annual Children's Festival this Spring.
