City of Brandon Parks & Recreation Services is pleased to inform the public that the Manitoba Hydro Power Smart Waterfall of Lights display will officially be turned on for the 2021-2022 winter season today at 5 p.m.
The sparkling display of holiday lighting is located immediately west of the City of Brandon’s Parks Services Complex on 2020 McGregor Avenue. As of this evening, the display will be turned on and remain lit from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. nightly through the winter season. No public vehicles are allowed in the direct area of the Power Smart Waterfall of Lights display. The public is encouraged to park in designated areas on McGregor Avenue or Hilton Avenue and walk through the area to view the lights. The City of Brandon asks all members of the public to enjoy the lighting displays at a safe distance and not to walk in areas where power cords are present.
Preparation of the public skating oval in the area of the Power Smart Waterfall of Lights has not been able to begin due to the unseasonably warm temperatures. However, weather permitting, work should begin in the coming weeks.
Please respect all signage and barricades in place once preparation of the oval begins and stay off the ice surface until it is ready for public use.
