Night of Lights Market ready to shine

The Coaldale Night of Lights Festival was cancelled due to the pandemic, but now there are new events showing up for artists, small businesses, and the public to enjoy. The Coaldale Night of Lights Market allows artisans and small businesses to showcase their interesting inventions and sell them to the public. The owner of Domesticated Divas, Courtney Samuels, says these events are important in supporting small businesses.

“Sometimes this is everybody’s livelihood. It can also be a side job, and it could also be a main business that people survive on. Small business has been hit very hard during this time. We are just trying to focus on the aspect of supporting small business, and pushing all the other controversial subjects aside and trying to welcome and bring everyone together. It’s super important that everybody comes out. Without the community support these crafters and small businesses will not be able to survive.”

The Night of Lights Market is free to attend on November 19th, and you will need to provide proof of vaccination to enter.

Also on the list for markets is the Holiday Gift Expo at the Just Furniture For Less on Mayor Magrath Drive on November 13th from 10am to 4pm.

The event will operate at one-third capacity and is free to attend. Over $1,000 of door prizes will be given out.

The last market in the area is Handcrafted With Love. This one is an artisan market where handcrafted items will be featured. The Multicultural Centre will host the event on November 20th from 10am to 4pm.

Another fun community event is Pumpkins For Pigs. You can save your pumpkins from ending up as compost by sending them over for the pigs to eat. That event runs from November 1-5 and you can drop off your pumpkins at Just Furniture For Less.
