The House of Assembly is closed for the season, but holiday spirits are high at Confederation Building tonight.
The lobby was packed as dozens made their way to witness the 31st annual Christmas Lights Across Canada ceremony.
Master of Ceremonies, Minister Steve Crocker opened the celebration, followed by performances from the St. Andrew’s Elementary School Choir and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment Band.
Premier Dwight Ball was joined by six-year-old Emma King for the official tree lighting ceremony this evening, and together they pressed the button which turned on more than 60,000 lights at Confederation Building and along Prince Philip Drive.
