Friday night we joined about 4,998 other people at the Light Up the Night Celebrations in Almonte, and it was a fabulous, fabulous, fabulous night.
We stood in the crowd of 5000, in the -7 cold night air for two hours, but we were warmed and thrilled right down to our toes.
Here is a short video of the stage at the end of the evening with all the participants joining in for the singing of Christmas in the Valley.
The whole evening was entertaining, but the highlight is always the Fireworks display at the very end. Here is a still picture of this year's show, but AC has a video of last year's show that will give you chills. If you haven't looked at it already, you must go do that RIGHT NOW! You will be glad you did.
