Free transit for Light Up Saturday

City of Vernon provides free bus service for Downtown Vernon’s annual Christmas Light Up

Take the bus for free in Vernon today.

Free transit is being provided by the City of Vernon in support of the Downtown Vernon Association’s 24th Annual Christmas Light Up.

Free transit all day makes the event accessible for the wider community, encourages a reduction in vehicle trips and minimizes parking demands in the downtown core.

“Enjoy the DVA event by taking advantage of free transit and travel comfortably on one of the ten new buses” said Amanda Watson, the city’s transportation manager.

The 24th Annual Light Up is presented by Nature’s Fare Markets.

Bring your family and friends to downtown Vernon from 5-8 p.m. and be a part of a community tradition.

Visit with Santa, listen to holiday carols on the stage and curbside music, sample some local fare, warm up at the bonfire, decorate an ornament or get your face painted.

Stores are open for holiday shopping in between the activities and entertainment. View the illuminating window displays as merchants compete in the Window Display Contest and vote for your favourite – or sip on some warm hot chocolate from one of the many food vendors.
