Festival of Lights at Tsawwassen Springs starts Friday

Free Christmas event runs nightly until Jan. 1.

Evenings are about to get a whole lot brighter at Tsawwassen Springs.

The third annual Festival of Lights at Tsawwassen Springs gets underway on Friday (Nov. 26) at 4 p.m. and will continue through until Jan. 1.

Close to 100 decorated Christmas trees will be located around the clubhouse area and 18th hole of the golf resort, creating a festive evening walk through a forest of trees for those wanting to get into the holiday spirit. Nearby Nat’s Coffee House will be open for hot beverages and snacks. 

The event is a huge fundraiser for the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation with over $32,000 generated in 2020 which went towards the purchase of a much-needed Colonoscope for Delta Hospital. This year, the goal is to purchase two Cardiac Monitors for the Emergency Department.

The money is raised by local businesses paying a set fee to sponsor their tree which they also decorate. The generosity of Harris Nursery also plays a big part by donating and delivering all the trees.

Members of the Delta Firefighters Charitable Society gave up their time last Friday to help with the delivery and tree set-up.

With COVID-19 safety restrictions in mind, there will not be an opening ceremony for a second straight year and the ice rink will also not be in operation. Instead the area will be used for photo opportunities.

“We have lots of new businesses this year. We are at 89 trees right now,” said Jill Presley, business and marketing coordinator for Tsawwassen Springs. “It’s for a great cause and best of all it’s free (admission).”
