Cochrane Light Up
November 21, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm
WHAT IS COCHRANE LIGHT UP?
This will be Cochrane Light Up’s 31st year and has become a great Cochrane tradition. Light Up is a completely volunteer-driven event that brings the community together in a street festival each year. The businesses along Historic Main Street in Cochrane all decorate their store fronts as we welcome the holidays to our wonderful home town.
Local businesses sponsor fire-pots for the evening which are situated on the closed off street. The fire pot sponsors provide hot dogs and serve hot chocolate to the attendees for free!
Children can participate in crafts and activities in a family friendly area – our new Igloo this year, which will be in the Rexall parking lot, and Santa will be there to say hello! Local choirs will be heard up and down the street, while thousands of Christmas lights will be twinkling, adding to the magic of the evening.
A Silent Auction and Random Acts of Kindness gift bags are distributed to spread holiday cheer, and a Christmas tree in the town square will be lit for the occasion, not to mention our very 30 foot tall tree on top of the Rexall building that can be seen from the top of the hills coming down into town. There will also be a few more surprises this year, so stay tuned!
