Where the lights shine

A list of the holiday light displays in Cloverdale and area in 2015

We’re keeping a list and checking it twice so you can find this year’s holiday light displays in Cloverdale and area.

Christmas Lights for Cancer

This Friday evening marks the kick off of a holiday light display at the home of Karen and Walter Wagner at 19056 63B Ave.

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening during the month of December, Team Eleanor and team Walk the Talk Surrey will be serving coffee and hot chocolate, as well as handing out candy canes to the little ones. Donations will be gratefully accepted on behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society’s Relay for Life campaign.

The lights are on from 6 to 10 p.m., Dec. 4 to Dec. 26.

“This is our second year of accepting donations and we were most grateful for all those who attended our light display and show and made donations last year,” says Karen Wagner.

The display is in remembrance to Karen Wagner’s father, and a dear family friend named Eleanor.

“We remember those we lost but also remember those going through treatment currently,” says Karen. “The lights bring us and everyone much enjoyment and so we look to a great turnout this year.”

Winter Wonderland

The Bonneteau’s home at 16951 Jersey Drive is a Winter Wonderland display that’s open from 6 to 11 p.m. daily to Jan. 5.

They are accepting donations on behalf of Variety, the Children’s Charity. This year there are more lights and more Christmas characters, including a handmade Nativity scene.

Surrey Food Bank helpers

Tania Gusola says there are more than 15,000 lights and a manger scene at 18244 57A Avenue, where the lights are on from Monday to Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on weekends to 11 p.m. They’re accepting donations for the Surrey Food Bank.
