Sundays In My City- Festival of Lights

I must preface this edition of "Sundays In My City" (hosted by Unknown Mami) by admitting that these pictures came from last night. I tried to capture some of this festival in last weeks pictures, but was foiled by thigh deep snow. As promised, the Chuckleheads, DaddyO, G'ma Roe and i took in the festivities on Saturday eve....

The Chuckleheads enjoying a wagon ride through the crowds. Not sure why we didn't bring the sled?? But, oh well.

It was a rather odd night; the day had been relatively warm, but cooled quickly into the night producing a luminescent haze. Driving was a bit difficult (i didn't see anything on the way home!!), but it made the lights just glow!


Tunnels of light! I love these! Almost the whole path through the park is lit up like this!


Candyland in lights!


It was a very nice night to visit the display (Airdrie Alberta). The first year we went, our daughter was only 10mths old--it was -40C and NO ONE was pleased with that. I have no idea what we were thinking THAT year!


We didn't bring ice skates, so maybe that is something we'll add to next years visit. I really hope the volunteers who give their time to bring this glorious event to life, continue to do so.


We're so thankful.


There--so " i've shown you mine, show me yours" ? I'd love to see your Sunday!

It is one of my life goals to ice skate outside. Haven't done it yet. This looks like a winter wonderland---I love the glowing tunnels.

Those lights are fantastic. I bet the kids love that tunnel, and the candy land is quite a picture. As for ice skating, I can move. forward. slowly. without falling. Enough said on that.

I love the tunnel of lights. I've never seen on in person.

I confess that most of my SIMC pictures are usually taken the week before or in advance. I carry my camera around so I don't miss anything I might want to use later. As long as I'm sharing on Sunday I've decided it still counts.

Im loving the tunnel of lights! Ice Skating..ever since I moved to the netherlands this is what I know for sure: They are born with the ability to swim,bike at the age of 2 and ice skate at 3! EVERYONE ice skates here..the instant the ponds freeze over they get out in it. It's insane..lol

Looked like fun ! I bet the kids really enjoyed it !
Oh, it is so pretty! A town a few miles away has something like this and I keep meaning to pack us up one night and go visit. Hopefully this will be the motivation I need : ) It looks fun! I love the children in their little hats. So precious!

Your town does a GREAT job with the lights and so do you taking pictures. The tunnel of lights has such a cool glow to it and your kids in the wagon are too cute :-)

Thanks for sharing your city. I hope your town keeps doing the light show!
