The Hills are alive with art, light, and music!

Join us on Saturday, September 22, 2018 from 7:30 - 9:30 PM in the Westhills community in Langford for the third Light Up the Hills festival.

Light Up the Hills is a family-friendly outdoor festival of light presented by the West Shore Arts Council and Westhills. Held after dark, the festival features illuminated artworks that will create a spectacular glowing effect throughout the community. Event participants will walk along a designated path, passing by various performances and artworks, using hand-made lanterns to guide their way. This community-focused event aims to showcase the creativity of local artists, musicians, and performers!

Parking will be available at Belmont Secondary School and at the Westhills YMCA. For those with small children or mobility issues, a trolley service will be circulating from Belmont, to the YMCA, and past Westhills Park.

RSVP on our Facebook event page!
