On Wednesday, 320 seniors will get a grand tour of Red Deer’s finest Christmas lights, hosted by the Red Deer Kinsmen and Red Deer Kinettes Club. A caravan of seven City of Red Deer transit buses will take them around town, and then to Westerner Park for refreshments and entertainment.

Organizers planned for 250 participants and ended up with 100 more than last year. Twenty minutes were added to the tour to see as many of the lights as possible.

Also taking a lights tour on Wednesday evening are children from the Aspire Special Needs Resource Centre. Four buses will take the kids, their families and volunteers through the lights on a 45-minute tour. They will also get a visit with Santa and some goodies at the Parkland Garden Centre.

“It’s just a nice evening for families to enjoy each other’s company and the Christmas season,” said organizer Valerie Lazicki.
