We are excited to continue this wonderful experience and heart warming tradition that begins the holiday season in Niagara-on-the-Lake.


The Candlelight Stroll begins at 6:30 pm on Friday, December 2nd, 2022, in front of the Old Courthouse on Queen Street.


  • Candles will be sold from 5pm-8pm or until candles sell out. Candles are $3 each, cash only please.

  • There will be an opening ceremony outside the Old Courthouse at 6:45pm. The Town Crier will introduce the recipients. The Lord Mayor and the Chamber President will offer brief remarks.

  • The lead recipient Ceto Reid will commence the candle lighting ceremony and lead the stroll in a horse drawn carriage (depending on his healing). Carriage is donated by Sentineal Carriages.

  • Participants walk along the stroll route behind the carriage. Enjoy musical Christmas performances from local artists who are generously donating their time and talent to this event.
