Not too long ago, Williams Park  – as seen through the lens of Gabrielle Strauss – was a literal sea of leaves. Since then, volunteers have spent countless hours decorating the park in anticipation of the annual light display. The drive-thru light show, however, was put on hold (along with many other such events) when COVID numbers started skyrocketing in B.C. Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is expected to make an announcement later today (Monday, Dec. 7) that will determine if Williams Park's light drive-thru exhibit will be able to go ahead this holiday season or not. Stay tuned. (Special to Langley Advance Times)
