Downtown Courtenay will be filled with magic on Friday November 17th with the much anticipated annual Moonlight and Magic celebration! There’s no better place to get into the spirit of the season than in the streets of beautiful Downtown Courtenay. Celebrated for generations, Moonlight and Magic invites the whole Comox Valley to head into the heart of Courtenay to kick off the festive season!
The merchants, cafes, restaurants and pubs of Downtown Courtenay will have special features all day long! Then, at 5 pm the special Moonlight and Magic activities begin! Pop up parties, campfires, face painting and crafts, live music events and more await visitors of all ages! The magic begins when the community lights up the Downtown Christmas Tree at 5:15 with a very special performance from the Comox Military Wives Choir at the corner of 5th and England.
Don’t miss a delightful kids program on the Mudsharks Patio from 5-8 pm with The Comox Valley Children’s Choir, Magician Greg Ladret, Captain Thunderpants, local family band The Cassies and much much more!
Up at the Comox Valley Art Gallery, art lovers can take in the final night of the stunning public exhibition “Offerings” in the gallery and then gather for music and a campfire on the plaza with Luke Blu Guthrie at 6 and the Latin sounds of Café Olé at 7! Then at 8 pm the Moonlight Pop Up Choir performs on the steps of the gallery before Ingnisia Circus takes to the streets for the annual Moonlight and Magic Fire Show on Duncan Avenue!
