Coquitlam needs volunteers for light brigade

Looking for individuals, school groups and businesses to help at popular Christmas display in Town Centre Park

Coquitlam would like to see a charge of volunteers to its Lights at Lafarge Light Brigade.

The city is looking for individuals, school groups or businesses to join the brigade to help create new features like its pop bottle tulip lights, to install special displays, take part in light-making workshops or lead the community in singing carols at Jingle Bells Night or for its Park Spark team’s pop-up activities during the Lights at Lafarge season in December and January.
