Thursday was Light Up Dwight night, at the Library, where the community gathered for good cheer, some great music, carol singing, glow sticks, great treats and hot cider and that lovely welcoming moment when the tree lights are turned on.
The glow sticks painted wonderful patterns in the night air.
It's always fun to see the floats -- and recognize friends waving back from them!
Cheers to our good friend Laurel, who is fund raising for the ME to WE trip to Nicaragua this year.
One of our favourite floats was from our buddies at Algonquin Outfitters -- canoes and kayaks on the truck roof and an entire winter of fun outdoor activities behind them on the truck!
We learned something too -- TreeTop Trekking tells us that they are going to be open during the winter for zip-lining. They handed us business cards, and candy canes!
Carol and I went from there to the Barra McNeil Christmas concert at the Algonquin Theatre. All those folks who ask, "What do you DO up there this time of year?" Well, this is the answer. PLENTY!
