Friends of the Canby Library Present Tour of Christmas Lights Fundraiser

The best and brightest Christmas displays in Canby will be front and center throughout December as part of the nonprofit Friends of the Canby Public Library‘s second annual Christmas Tour of Lights.

Participants will have the option to do their tour all in one night or spread it out over several days, then vote for their favorite displays by 6 p.m. December 28.

Winning homeowners not only get bragging rights, but also prizes from local sponsors, including the grand prize — $250 in products and services from Holiday Light Solution.

“Christmas is a wonderful time in Canby, and this is one of the events that showcases the small-town magic making our community so special,” Friends President Gayle Elizabeth said in a press release. “We are grateful to our sponsors and members, and to all the homeowners who work hard to make the season bright.”

Tickets are $20 and go on sale from 5 to 8 p.m. Thursday, December 1, in front of the Canby Public Library as part of the city’s First Thursday Night Market. The Friends will also be offering hot cocoa and Christmas cookies to decorate, courtesy Gwynn’s Coffee House and Cutsforth’s Market.

Donations are tax-deductible and all proceeds go toward the Friends of the Canby Library, which provides free educational and cultural programming at the Canby Public Library.

Tickets will also be available for purchase at Cutsforth’s Market and the Canby Public Library during normal business hours. Tickets come with a map and a ballot and may also be purchased online at
