Show Extension to January 7 for the River of Lights

The City of Brockville is pleased to announce an extension to the River of Lights.

Previously scheduled to run until January 2nd, the show has been extended to Sunday, January 7th. The decision to extend the show was made after receiving feedback from the Tourism Team at the Aquatarium and requests to extend the show for families who have children on break from school that week who are looking for things to do.

Please enjoy the show for a few extra nights and support our local shops and restaurants when you visit 🙂

As always, the show is weather dependent – in the case of extreme weather or freezing rain that would make the site unsafe we will make an announcement through the website “announcements” feature and post in the Facebook event for the 2023 River of Lights.

No parking signs have been set up in the angled-parking top four spaces to facilitate the pick up and drop off during this giveaway so you can pull right in to get your book.

Brockville City Council and Brockville City Staff would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays and hope that you will enjoy having these books on your bookshelves for years to come.

Quick Facts:

  • Where: Market Street West beside City Hall (please approach from Water Street)
