the HRM Tree Lighting and the Spryfield Santa Claus Parade which are

On Saturday night between 6 and 7 p.m. the annual HRM Tree Lighting

popular event draws many spectators to the downtown core. Motorists
should expect delays when travelling in the area due to increased
vehicle and pedestrian traffic as well as road closures.

p.m. It will start on Punch Bowl Drive, travel along Herring Cove Road
and end at the Spryfield Lion’s Rink on Drysdale Road. This event is
expected to draw a lot of spectators and roads will be closed as the
parade passes along the route.
