The Oak Bay Christmas Festival kicks off the last Sunday in November with the Christmas Festival Light Up. Featuring musical entertainment, Lighted Trucks, street entertainment, roasted chestnuts and thousands of lights on buildings, trees and lampposts throughout the Village, Light Up celebrates the start of the festive season in Oak Bay Village. Santa Claus arrives by fire truck to really get things started!
Lights come on at 5pm sharp!
Other events during the Christmas Festival include the Art on the Avenue Gallery Walk, when shops and galleries open for evening browsing and tasting, and the Island Equipment Owners Association Parade of Lighted Trucks, featuring over 80 brightly lit cement trucks, dump trucks and other heavy equipment.
