Nain’s Tree Lighting

The annual Christmas tree lighting will be held in Nain this Sunday, December 1st, 2019.

Carla Pamak is the Chairperson for Ullapitsaijet steering committee.

She says the tree lighting will take place in front of the Nunatsiavut Government Building, starting at 6:30 pm.

Pamak says if the weather permits they will be serving hot chocolate and Timbits.

The Nain Brass Band will perform and there will be people singing carols.

Pamak says the Christmas tree is lighted on the First Advent Sunday, because it is the start of the Christmas season, and First Advent is celebrated on the north coast of Labrador.

She says it will remain lighted till Nalujuit Night on Monday, January 6th, 2020.

Pamak hopes the community will come out and witness the tree lighting and enjoy carol singing.
