The legislature was part of the federal government’s 34th Christmas Lights Across Canada event Thursday as holiday lights came on in Victoria and other capital cities around the country.
About 4,000 Christmas lights have been put on the legislature building and the large sequoia on the grounds. It took two staffers about two weeks off and on to install Christmas lights on the building. The usual complement of 3,450 white lights is still in place.
Festivities at the legislature included performances by the South Park Family School Choir, at right, the SingYourJoy Young Adult Chorus and the Reynolds Secondary School Band.
