Sneak preview of Courthouse lights on display this morning with Winterfest start just a week away

Testing, Testing ... Crews were busy this morning testing some of he
annual Court House light display

With a light dusting of snow on the ground and some crisp near winter air to go with it, a surprise greeted those travelling through the city's Downtown core this morning, as crews working on the annual Court House lights display started to test the arrangement making for a pretty impressive site prior to sunrise.

The light display is one of the popular elements to the City's Winterfest period which gets underway in December, and this year the Special Events Society is providing for a few events while still mindful of COVID to get us in the Holiday spirit.

Among some of the items on the schedule so far for the 2021 Winterrest includes a Letters To Santa with a deadline of December 3rd to get your letter in to the Jolly Old Elf.

The Second annual Light Up the Town event is also set to take place, with residents of Prince Rupert and Port Edward encouraged to decorate their homes or businesses in the holiday spirit and follow the Facebook event for Bragging rights on their displays this year.

This year Winterfest organizers have put in place a Secret Santa project, where you can nominate someone who goes above and beyond in the community,  with those selected to receive a gift from the Winterfest Secret Santas.

Winterfest gets underway on December 4th and you can learn more about the events above from the Prince Rupert Special Events website.

As well, follow the Special Events Facebook page for updates as Winterfest gets underway.

The City of Prince Rupert is already in the holiday spirit, with City workers installing the annual collection of Christmas decorations along Third Avenue West, this years items matching up nicely with the Third Avenue and Cow Bay Light corridor project.

The Third Avenue corridor was lit up this morning with
Christmas elements added to the year round lighting initiative
