Welcome to the Celebration at our Canadian Naval Base on Vancouver Island


Mark your calendars for December 7th.

It’s our FIFTH ANNIVERSARY and we’d like

you to join us in celebrating!

It was an ambitious plan, as many other

communities have discovered, to start a

“Celebration of Lights” event in Esquimalt.

Dino Fiorin, a long time resident of Esquimalt,

and currently President of the Esquimalt

Chamber of Commerce had a dream to

create a family affair and “light up


In partnership with Esquimalt Neighborhood

House, the Esquimalt Chamber of

Commerce, Country Grocer and Esquimalt

Lions, the project was launched in

December, 2006.

In the first year, the Celebration of Lights

began as a wonderful, free community

event with “Xmas in the Town Square”

and continued on to the light up event and

entertainment in the Esquimalt plaza.

As the event grew and expanded it became

necessary to move it to the Archie Browning

Sports Centre.

In 2007, the first Celebration of Lights

parade added to the festivities, and a

lighting contest was added in 2008.

Whether you light up your balcony, home,

business or street, everyone is encouraged

to embrace the spirit of the season.

Come on out to Esquimalt and enjoy an

evening of fun and excitement!
