The committee for the Light up the Night Santa Claus Parade in Lac La Biche has announced that a fireworks show has been added to the night’s entertainment.
The Lac La Biche Firefighter’s Society is putting the event on this Friday night. Committee head and Firefighter’s Society past-president, Chris Clark, says there will be approximately 300 shells going off at the same time the 36 foot Christmas tree is lit
“It’ll be an approximately 5 to 8 minute fireworks show that will go off behind the businesses on Main Street. If you’re planning on coming down, you’ll want to get there early, as we’re expecting 2 to 3 thousand people downtown.”
The parade is scheduled to begin at 6:30pm, along with the tree lighting by Junior Citizen of the Year Sarah Adil. The Santa Comes to Town event happens at the Lac La Biche Fire Hall from 11 to 2 the next day, where kids can get photos with Santa, play street hockey, and more.
