Moonlight & Magic took over Downtown Courtenay on Friday night (Nov. 18) – the unofficial kick-off of the Christmas season in the Comox Valley. Entertainment was provided, pop-up art tables and exhibits, and the lighting of the 5th Street Christmas tree drew hundreds of residents to the downtown core. Here are some photos from the event.
