The most wonderful time of the year starts with the Celebration of Lights. 

"The Celebration of Lights Park is something the Strathmore & District Agricultural Society takes immense pride in! Countless volunteer hours go into creating this magical space for the community, as well as, many more hours go into having the park open daily," said a post on the Strathmore Stampede Facebook page. 

The park opened up to kick off Strathmore's spirit of Christmas on November 25 and has been open every day from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Those days included Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The Celebration of Lights will run until January 6, 2024. 

There is no entry fee however, monetary donations are welcome at the gate.
