On the first of the month Lousje and her partner Glenn bundled up and headed to historic Niagara-on-the-Lake to participate in the town's annual Candlelight stroll. This festive event has been a town tradition for almost 30 years, drawing crowds of nearly seven thousand attendees.

It costs only $5, which includes your very own candle to carry, and starts at 6:30PM with an opening ceremony before setting off on foot through the streets. Prior to the evening's events, attendees could have caught showcases from the likes of the Shaw Festival Performers and the Niagara Star Singers & Women's Choir.

That beautiful evening the streets were dotted with bands and choirs singing Christmas tunes as well as performers in festive period clothing. The gorgeous houses were decorated for the holidays and attendees could pop into church's that had their doors open to see performances.

This year the proceeds from the event went to two extraordinary young people in our community facing difficult health challenges. Both recipients have been hard at work raising funds for causes close to their hearts and giving support to others who suffer from similar illnesses.
