Town of Riverview / Light Up Riverview

Each year thousands of residents and visitors alike come together over hot cocoa and festive carols to light up the Town and make the pines along the Petitcodiac sparkle. Light Up Riverview is a fun-filled event that draws family and friends together to celebrate the upcoming holiday season. New this year: enjoy the Merry and Bright challenge, featuring a digital map of participating local businesses and homes that answered the call to decorate in the hopes of lifting and brightening spirits across the entire community! Light Up Riverview display locations are also featured on the map.

This special celebration also marks the launch of the holiday shopping season where local businesses shine brighter than before. Visit the riverfront between Nov. 25 and January 6 to take it all in. This is one tradition you won't want to miss.

More than 52,000 lights will light the trail this year, which has become a popular destination and tradition for many families to enjoy a winter walk with a difference. The lights sparkle from late November to early January. Visitors are reminded of trail etiquette during the pandemic and should continue to follow guidelines from public health including physical distancing, hygiene and mask wearing when physical distancing is not possible.
