Victoria Park is lit up for the holiday season! Bring the whole family to experience the magic of the holidays in beautiful downtown London.
Victoria Park has turned into a Winter Wonderland, illuminated with festive lights and displays for Londoners to enjoy now and through the holiday season.
Mayor Ed Holder together with Jesse Foster, a Personal Support Worker with the London Health Sciences Centre, turned the lights on for the first time this evening, illuminating the park with over 75,000 lights.
Specially decorated trees include,
Angel Tree: The Angel Tree honours the lives of children that have passed on with each white light in honor of a child’s cherished memory.
Tree to commemorate the troops overseas: The tree with yellow lights will be aglow in support of Canadian troops serving around the world.
Tree of Hope: The pink lights on the Tree of Hope represent a beacon of hope to those who have been diagnosed or who have survived breast cancer.
Tree of Wishes: The blue lights on the Tree of Wishes support the Make-A-Wish Foundation to honour children with life-threatening medical conditions who have received a wish.
Tree to Shine the Light on Woman Abuse: The tree with purple lights represents the burning individuality, strength and ever-lasting hope of abused women and the acknowledgement that society will no longer remain in the dark about woman abuse.
Remember, Honour, Celebrate Tree: The tree with red lights is illuminated in remembrance of the thousands of lives lost to HIV/AIDS.
Donor Tree: The blue and green lights on the Donor Tree represent The Trillium Gift of Life Network which coordinates organ donation and transplants across the province and the Kidney Foundation which is committed to kidney health and improving lives for all people.
