It is one of the highlights of the season in Rutland.

The Rutland Winter Light Up is set for Saturday, Nov. 25 from 1 to 4:30 p.m. at Rutland Centennial Park.

The event features family-friendly activities, as well as photos with Santa, hot chocolate, hot cider, live entertainment and a local artisans market.

“We are really excited to be able to bring this great community event to the Rutland area of our city,” said Christina Ferreira, Impact Events and Brand Management.

Attendees can lunch at one of four food trucks and the Kelowna Chiefs will also be on-site.

“We’ve expanded the event based on a successful return in 2021 and 2022, you’ll find more vendors, more food trucks, and more live entertainment to take in during this outdoor festival, and it wouldn’t be a light-up event without us lighting the tree at Rutland Centennial park, where it will stay lit through until the end of December,” Ferreira added.

Mayor Tom Dyas will light the Christmas Tree at 4:15 p.m.
