Worry not, anxious winter wonderland seekers, the Candlelight Stroll will be returning on Dec. 3.
“People are so excited to get out and do stuff, especially during the holiday season. I think it’s going to be really popular this year,” the Niagara-on-the-Lake Chamber of Commerce's events co-ordinator Nicole Cripps said in an interview.
Attendees are asked to gather near the Court House on Queen Street at 6:45 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 3. The stroll will commence at 7 p.m.
“A lot of our regular bands and choirs are already on board and are really excited about participating,” Cripps said.
“We’ll also be doing our food drive again for Newark Neighbours.”
Cripps said COVID-19 safety protocols will be observed.
We are “asking all attendees to wear a mask when they are unable to social distance, so, probably at all times” due to the expected large crowd, she said.
People should take their time with the stroll and not rush through, she said.
“The bands and the choir usually stay out until 9,” she said.
“They could even walk around twice if they really wanted to because once it goes everyone naturally will spread out on their own.”
