The Cochrane Light Up is set to go from 4:30 to 7:30 and organizer Stephenie Shelstad wishes to remind Cochranites of a couple of things.
Firstly, it is recommended that you park in The Quarry, or on sides streets and walk to Main Street which will be blocked off to traffic.
Stephenie asks that you DO NOT park in the Bright Path Kids (old IGA) parking lot as it will be used for COLT pickup and drop off. COLT will have 5 buses running all evening for the event. Shelstad says this would be a great way to get to and from the event.
Secondly, organizers are requesting that you DO NOT bring your pets this year. If you do bring your dog, they must be off of Main Street by 7 pm. The event is going end with a literal big bang and organizers do not want to stress any animals. Horses will be removed from the area by 7 as well. It is for the safety of all involved.
The Cochrane Light Up sees thousands of people flock to the event as the official kick off to the Christmas season.
