Light Up The Night was the dream child of
Wayne Rostad and a group of town's people
who wanted an out-door concert in the heart of
their small town...in the heart of winter!
Wayne a longtime resident of Pakenham,
which is a sister village to Almonte, had written
his classic Christmas song, Christmas In The
Valley. To say that the song was an instant
success would be an understatement! From
the moment it made it's debut, the song
became a Christmas standard. The town was
inspired to create an event around Christmas
In The Valley and their famous favourite son.
Wayne and the team approached store owners
up and down main street and in fact
throughout the entire town, and on the very
first Friday in December, 1991, Light Up The
Night was born.
Since that night and for the past twenty-three
years, Light Up The Night has grown and
prospered, and Wayne Rostad and Friends
continue to support and carry on the tradition.

Night! To read more Click Here!
