The City of Welland will be supporting self-guided tours only for the Welland Winter Lights contest on Dec. 7 and 8. In addition, a Fill the Bus Food Drive will be included in conjunction with the event. Due to rising cases of COVID-19 in Niagara, the previously advertised bus tours portion of the Welland Winter Lights contest are cancelled to ensure public safety and help lessen the spread of COVID-19.
This year, everyone is invited to enjoy the Welland Winter Lights through a self-guided tour on Dec. 7 and 8. City staff and the Welland Downtown Business Improvement Area will be at Market Square both evenings between the hours of 5 p.m. and 8 p.m. to collect items for the food and toy drive and host a Fill the Bus Food Drive campaign with support from Welland Public Transit. Complimentary reindeer antlers and treat bags will be offered while supplies last. A tour map will be made available on the city’s public engagement platform, YourChannel, on Fri. Dec. 4, at 4:30 p.m.
