DELTA (NEWS 1130) — Christmas lights have been up for awhile on some homes, but Delta wants to make it official Tuesday night.
Everyone in the city is being asked to turn on their lights at 7:00 p.m. Tuesday.
Mayor George Harvie says it’s a way to create some cheer.
“It really picked up momentum and it’s covers everything from our businesses — right through North Delta to South Delta,” he says.
“You can either turn them off just before or leave them off then all turning them on at 7:00 p.m.”
Just one more day until #LightUpDelta! Join the community at 7:00pm tomorrow to collectively #LightUpDelta this holiday season! Once your lights are on, bundle up & get outside to enjoy the displays. Learn how to join in the fun: https://t.co/QbXvYsRqCp #DeltaBC pic.twitter.com/wj99jdB2pe

Last month, the District of North Vancouver thought about restricting when lights can be turned on, but that idea was shot down by council.
“I don’t like to criticize my fellow mayors or councils, they have their own issues of course as we do here in Delta. But I just thought, during the pandemic, we got to be doing things to brighten people’s lives up,” Harvie says.
