The annual Light Up The Night event on Dec. 3 will signal the Christmas season is ready to roll in Canby

Canby is getting ready to again welcome the Christmas season. To kick it off, the 20th Annual Light Up The Night event will return to Wait Park on Friday, Dec. 3.

Light Up The Night will begin at 6 p.m. with a lighted parade throughout downtown Canby. A new parade route was created by the City of Canby and Canby Fire District to ensure safety for parade participants and viewers alike.

The lighted parade will finish at Wait Park at approximately 6:30 p.m. as the Canby Fire District delivers Santa and Mrs. Claus on North Grant Street. The Oregon Trail Pitchpipers, a Barbershop Harmony Society musical group, will return with holiday songs to welcome Santa to the Wait Park gazebo.

The winner of "Who Lights Up Canby" will turn on the lights in the park.

Children of all ages are encouraged to stay for a chat and photo opportunity with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Santa will stay until the last child has the opportunity to share.
