Join us for a great night out with live music, mulled wine, a vibey night market,

Light Up Your Hat competition, and more!

Light Up Winter transforms The Mall into a winter wonderland with thousands of fairy lights and light installations. The businesses in the Mall also join in on the action by dressing up their windows in creative ways to win the title of "Best Dressed Window" in our window display competition, adding to the magical atmosphere. 


With live music, fire dancers, roaming street performers as well as a vibrant night market offering delicious food and tasty treats, homemade goodies, crafts, and more, you will soon forget about the chill. If the cold becomes a bit much for the little ones, they can escape to the Craft Cave to create their light-up masterpiece, get creative, or snuggle in for a story or two. 

The highlight of the evening is the mass lantern release that lights up the night sky. This is a magical moment that is definitely not be missed.

After the lantern release, the fun continues in the Mall with the Light Up Your Hat parade where everyone can show off their wild and wacky creations. The party then continues with a live band that is sure to get everyone on the dance floor.
