Tour of Lights party brings holiday spirit to Oakville seniors

Thu, 11 Dec 2014

The Town of Oakville and many generous volunteers hosted the 45th annual Tour of Lights party last night to give 160 Oakville seniors an opportunity to take in the holiday light displays throughout town.

“This annual event for seniors is a great example of our community coming together to make the season brighter for many frail and elderly residents,” said Nina de Vaal, director of recreation and culture for the Town of Oakville. “Thank you to the many volunteers who donated their time to share the holiday spirit with others.”

This year’s event began with a refreshment stop and entertainment at Town Hall followed by a tour of Oakville’s brightest holiday light displays led by off-duty Oakville Transit drivers and limousine drivers from Ward’s Funeral Home.

The popular annual event is offered free for seniors, many of whom would be unable to see the holiday lights on their own.
