Riverview extends light display until February 15

RIVERVIEW (N.B.) - The Town of Riverview is hoping to make the New Year a little brighter for everyone.

On behalf of Riverview Town Council, Mayor Ann Seamans today announced that the Town’s holiday lights display – an array of more than 40,000 colourful lights strung on trees and structures along the Riverfront Trail – will remain on from dusk to dawn until Feb. 15, 2021.

“Our ‘Light Up Riverview’ display usually ends January 6 but we felt it would inspire a bit of hope in these challenging times to keep it on until the end of our annual Winter Carnival, for this year only,” said Mayor Seamans. “We’ve had an amazing response to the lights this year, with many finding them a real source of joy and community pride amid the pandemic. It felt right to keep them going longer this year, to keep spirits up while we await a vaccine.”

Riverview’s holiday lights switched on in late November. The annual spectacle, originally launched in 2016, brings residents and visitors alike to the Town’s riverfront to enjoy a dazzling, tree-lined path that stretches about a kilometer along Coverdale Road.

Visitors to Light Up Riverview are reminded of Riverfront Trail etiquette during the pandemic. They should continue to follow guidelines from public health, including physical distancing and wearing a mask when physical distancing is not possible.

Meanwhile, details on Riverview’s annual Winter Carnival, scheduled for Feb. 5 to 14, 2021, will be released in the coming weeks.
