Check out the best Christmas light displays in town this weekend from the comfort of a city bus.

Campbell River’s annual Christmas Light Tour, co-ordinated by the Willow Point Lions Club, is this Sunday.

Tom McKenzie of the Lions Club said he’s not sure how many houses will be on the tour this year, but there will be several.

“There will be an hour’s worth,” McKenzie said.

“Buses leave the Sportsplex at 7 p.m. and then there will be coffee, doughnuts and pop afterwards at the Sportsplex.”

BC Transit will pick-up anyone wanting to take part in the tour at four different locations.

Participants can board the bus at the Campbell River Community Centre at 6:30 p.m., Yucalta Lodge at 6:40, the Larwood Seniors Complex at 6:50 or at the Sportsplex at 7.

Transit invites everyone to participate, including seniors and persons with disabilities.

The event is free of charge.

Meanwhile, the City of Campbell River and BC Transit are partnering to provide special holiday service.

On New Year’s Eve, from 6:45 p.m.-2:45 a.m., service will be free of charge; a Safety Net Security Guard will be on board all buses that night.

Regular service will be in effect during the day on Dec. 31, all day Christmas Eve and from Dec. 27-30.

There will be no service on Christmas Day or Boxing Day.

Regular service hours will be back in effect on Jan. 2.

For the New Year’s Eve night time schedule call (250) 287-7433.
