Greetings from the Mayor On behalf of the City of Lacombe, I am pleased to present the 2016 Light Up the Night Guide. This publication contains the details on all the family-friendly festive fun events being held from November 23 – 27. I have to admit that I am a child at heart, and I look forward to the Christmas season with great anticipation each and every year. The Light Up the Night festival is a great way for our community to connect and kick off the holidays together! I invite you to enjoy the many familiar and new events and activities that are part of this year’s festival. Take in family favourites, including the Tim Horton’s Santa Claus Parade, Moonlight Madness and our many arts and crafts markets. Rediscover the cinematic magic of the Polar Express in 3D, go for dip at the Kinsmen Aquatic Centre and snap a family photo with Jolly Old St. Nick! Watch the fireworks ignite over the fresh fallen snow, zip down the LMC’s ice slide or eat to your heart’s content at the Best Western Christmas Brunch. New activities include a live reading of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” at St. Andrew’s United Church, which I am happy to lend my voice to this year. There is a fun and interactive live performance for young children at the LMC, and the Lacombe Flying Club is offering Twinkle Light Tours in support of the Lacombe Food Bank. LACOMBE EXPRESS

Of course, all this would not be possible without the kindness, generosity and tremendous community spirit of our many sponsors and volunteers; a heartfelt thanks to you all for making this such a fantastic event! Again, on behalf of Council and staff of the City of Lacombe, I wish you and your loved ones all the warmth this Holiday Season has to offer. Have a wonderful Christmas and a New Year filled with peace and joy! Sincerely,

Mayor Steve Christie

Lacombe Memorial Centre Lights Display Every year, the Lacombe Memorial Centre Lights Display seems to grow in size and popularity. It has quickly become a holiday destination that’s not to be missed! This year will not be any different. A greater variety of holiday-themed music will be provided for the light shows, and there will also be periods where the display will be ‘static’ so people can also enjoy the full impact of the over 50,000 lights! Did you know that you can also listen to and enjoy the lights display from the comfort of your vehicle? Just tune your car radio to 88.1FM to hear the music. Of course, the amount of work that goes into mounting this lights display is significant. We’d like to send a big shout-out to our dedicated sponsors and community partners for helping make this display possible each year. We also invite you to check out the tree lighting ceremony immediately following the parade; it is a sight to behold and is sure to put you in the holiday spirit.

Ho! Ho! Hope you enjoy!

Fireworks In keeping with recent tradition, the fireworks display will not be held until a few days before Christmas. This allows families to celebrate with family and friends. The lake should be fully frozen

by then so people can skate and toboggan. We will have the fire pits on hand to keep everyone toasty, and the Tim Horton’s will be onsite with their community truck providing hot chocolate

and coffee for all. If you haven’t seen fireworks set off against a wintery backdrop, it is really a wonderful, marvellous sight! So dress warm, and come join us for some holiday magic!

Santa Claus Parade

Handy Tips Plan the best parade experience From what to pack to where to park, a little planning will go a long way come Parade Day.

Don’t forget your letters for Santa!

Canada Post is excited to be collecting your letters to Santa along the parade route. To help you get started, we have provided a special festive letterhead on Page 7. 26 Light Up The Night Festival Guide 2016


Brrrr ... It’s cold!

You just never know what the weather will be like on Parade Day. So dress in lots of layers. Fill a backpack with gloves, scarves, and hats. Santa takes his time and you can get cold waiting outside – so come prepared.

Best place to see the parade? There isn’t a bad spot along the parade route, just busy ones. Be sure to arrive early as spots can fill up fast.

Parking along the parade route

While there may be no parking right along the parade route, there are public parking lots nearby. Check out the festival map for a complete list of available public parking.

Nearest food locations

The Santa Claus Parade runs right past a number of super awesome restaurants! Be sure to check them out; they are a great way to warm before and/or after the parade.

Pre-parade entertainment

We want to keep you interested! This year there will be some impromptu fire dancing demonstrations along 50th Avenue prior to the parade.

Is he here yet?

Santa works on North Pole time. Waiting for the parade to start can be tough on the little ones. Come prepared with colouring books and toys. Feel free to visit the shops and stores downtown for a quick warm up! Check out the great Moonlight Madness Promotion on Page ? LACOMBE EXPRESS

Kids of all ages were slipsliding down this popular attraction last winter. With such a positive reception last year, the double ice slide will become a fixture of the festival for years to come. We hope to reduce the line ups when the slide is busiest, and maybe even spur on some friendly competition! As always, this attraction is weather dependent. Should the snow take some time to arrive, we will simply reschedule the installation for a little later in the season. So cross your fingers, perform a snow dance, and with any luck we can make the magic happen in time for the start of the festival. 34 Light Up The Night Festival Guide 2016

Hanging with the Claus Ho! Ho! Ho! Good people of Lacombe, Greeting and Salutations! Has a year already passed us by? It seems like it was only yesterday that I was in your beautiful city for the last Tim Horton’s Santa Claus Parade. Time certainly flies by, just like my trusty sleigh on Christmas Eve, as the reindeer and I zoom around the world delivering presents to all the boys and girls. I bet you all are wondering what I get up to after completing my annual Christmas Eve run. I do have to admit that the trip is a lot of work. It takes me months of long naps and a (ahem...) healthy diet to recover. Honestly, I cannot even look at a cookie until, oh... at least April. By then the reindeer are done hibernating and we all need to bulk up so we have plenty of energy stored up for our next big trip. So we eat and eat and eat! And I don’t mind telling you that I do slip out in disguise once in a while to experiment

with some of our favourite foods from across the globe. Lacombe is definitely on my list of places to go, as your city is becoming such a great place to stop in for a bite. I can grab a gobbler for lunch, cannoli for dessert and those scrumptious duck wings for an afternoon snack...hmnn, yummy! I usually leave in the afternoon with a big smile on my face and my belt a little tighter... Anyhow, from then on, we start those infernal agility drills. Hup! Hup! Beginning in July, the reindeer start using the new-fangled virtual reality simulator to help them practice their landings. Once they start feeling lively, they start jumping. When I say jumping, I mean from building to building; over bridges, mountains and ice bridges! It can be pretty exciting and (frankly quite dizzying) to watch. As for me, well I am practicing too! I have to be pretty nimble to tip-toe across your roof and shimmy down that

Hairapy health for your hair!


chimney! I have found that a good yoga program keeps me limber. Ho! Ho! Ho! As I pen this, we’re in the gifting mode. I am in the midst of reviewing letters and submitting requests to the elves. This reminds me... when you come down to the parade; please bring your letters along. The good posties at Canada Post will collect them once again for me. I rather enjoy reading them on my return trip to the North Pole. Well, that’s it for now... Oh, here’s one last little bit of Christmas advice; try to smile a little brighter and act a little nicer towards your family and friends. I very much look forward to seeing you at the Santa Claus Parade. Until good, you don’t know who’s watching (wink)! Ho! Ho! Ho!
