Petawawa Homefire Festival of Lights

By Patricia Leboeuf

Posted on Thursday December 17, 2020


Petawawa Homefire Festival of Lights brought Christmas cheer to military members and their loved ones. Different units set up a one-kilometre long drive-through light display on Sapper Way to give Canadian Armed Forces members who saw their work Christmas celebrations cancelled a chance to celebrate the holidays in a COVID-19 safe environment. Children were also given presents from Santa Claus and his elves. To adhere to health regulations, every family was given a day and time to attend between Nov. 30 and Dec. 3, and they remained in their vehicle at all times.
