Photos: Catch the glow of Shine Bright New West

Have you been downtown to wander through the tunnel of lights in Hyack Square?

New Westminster is shining bright again for the holiday season.

The award-winning Shine Bright New West event is underway again for the holiday season — with holiday light displays, free events, creative activities and a variety of stage productions to help community members enjoy the winter holiday season.

This year’s highlights include nature art in the form of illuminated creatures created by artist Nickie Lewis, which have taken up residence in parks and public spaces across the city, a Winter Solstice-themed art exhibition at the Queen’s Park Gallery, and a variety of markets selling holiday and seasonal gifts and goodies.

Merchants are also getting in on the fun with special themed Shine Bright Downtown shopping nights on Thursdays.

Record photographer Jennifer Gauthier hit uptown and downtown this weekend to check out some of the holiday spirit. Here are some highlights of what she found.
