Prince Rupert's Court House display goes dark, as crews close down annual light show


All good things, particularly seasonal light displays, must come to an end.

And this week, workers with CityWest have been bringing an end to the Court House  Holiday Light  Display with bucket trucks and ladders the tools of the trade.

CityWest crews were busy this week, disconnecting the power supply
and attending to the annual Holiday lights display at the Court House

This years display went up the last week of November and managed to showcase two seasons of colourful lighting on the Court House Lawn, with both a fall vibe and a winter wonderland one, complete with Snow, Ice and Winter temperatures.

The lights making for a peaceful refuge for the Holiday period, one enjoyed by many residents who wandered the Court Houser area this winter.

CityWest became even more involved in the community lighting program this year, taking on sponsorship of the Annual Event and joining the Prince Rupert Regional Community Foundation with a donation towards the Prince Rupert Special Events light spectacular.

As it has been the last few years owing to COVID, the Lighting of the Court House was a low key affair, with public gathering measures putting the night of festivities on the back burner for another year.

The lights are off for another year as the annual 
Court House display goes dark until December

Hopefully, when the CityWest team pulls out the lights and power cords  and flips a switch at the end of 2022, the Festival experience will return with the annual public celebration.
