6 Stunning Tree Lighting Events in the Halifax Region

For those who feel that holiday music should be played year-round, those who leave up their Christmas trees well into the new year, and those who believe that Elf should be viewed at least once a month, this is for you.

The holidays in Halifax are absolutely PACKED with events, activities, shows, and markets, and it can be tough to know what to do and when. Each weekend brings a new craft market, holiday parade or seasonal production, and it can be hard to keep up!

That’s why we’ve pulled together a list of Christmas tree lighting events happening throughout the Halifax region during the 2019 holiday season.

Happy holidays from Halifax!
