Help light up Filberg

Combine the beauty of Filberg Park with the magic of Christmas and you have the Light Up the Filberg Park campaign.

Combine the beauty of Filberg Park with the magic of Christmas and you have the Light Up the Filberg Park campaign.

Started in earnest last year with a generous donation from Canadian Tire, the Filberg Lodge and Park Association (FHLPA) hopes to light up more of the park.

If you have extra LED Christmas lights, white or any colour, you are welcome to drop them off at the Filberg Lodge between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday to Friday until Nov. 21. Cash donations are also welcome, and any donation over $25 gets a tax receipt.

Filberg Park at 61 Filberg Rd. in Comox is open dawn to dark every day and there is never a charge to enjoy the scenery.

Visit or call 250-339-2715 for the Holiday Season calendar of events and for more information about the Light Up The Filberg Park campaign.
