Decorated homes help celebrate the season in Esquimalt

Township has launched its first-ever online Christmas lights map

Around the same time Esquimalt residents kicked off the holiday season with the annual light-up and parade this month, the Township’s parks and recreation department quietly unveiled its first ever online Christmas lights map.

While not an extensive list of decorated homes in the municipality – only homeowners who agreed have their addresses listed – the map will take holiday display hunters around Esquimalt, where you might just stumble upon other fabulous household light-ups.

You can find the map at esquimalt.ca/parks-recreation then click on Community Holiday Light-Up Map.
