Amherstburg’s annual Christmas light celebration, River Lights, kicks off this Saturday.

It begins at 5pm with the Super Santa 5K Run/Walk. Also at 5pm, “Holiday Classic – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” will be presented on a giant screen and a giant “Bumble” makes his debut at the River Lights Festival.

The tree lighting takes place at 6pm with fireworks ending the evening at 6:20pm. All the fun takes place in Navy Yard Park.

Throughout this Christmas season you can get into the festive spirit by taking a stroll through over 100 lighted displays including two large animated fireworks displays and a computerized Christmas tree set to holiday music.

The displays take you through two parks in the historic downtown area of Amherstburg. They are lit nightly, from 5:30pm to 9:30pm until December 30th. There are also several events planned on weekends for added family Christmas fun.
