One of Kelowna’s most beloved holiday traditions will come to life tonight.
Dozens of homes on Collison Road, Gramiak Road and Mary Court in Rutland will be flicking on their holiday lights this evening.
Normally, that would hardly be newsworthy, but these streets make up Kelowna’s iconic Candy Cane Lane.
For the month of December, this small Rutland neighbourhood will be the most festive spot in town and draw thousands of people to its streets.
This will be year 13 for Candy Cane Lane, a spectacle that has continued to grow since its inception more than a decade ago.
And that growth has translated into a lot of good for the community, as the neighbourhood collects donations for several important causes throughout the month-long run.
Candy Cane Lane is completely free to enjoy, but there’s a donation bin on site where people are encouraged to deposit non-perishables and toiletries as they walk by.
All of what’s collected will be donated throughout the holiday season to the Women’s Shelter, Freedom’s Door, The Salvation Army, Mamas for Mamas and the Springvalley Elementary breakfast program.
Candy Cane Lane lights up from 5-10 pm every night in December until the decorations are taken down and put into storage on New Year’s Day.
