On November 30, First Avenue is home to the world-renowned Festival of Lights and it marks the thirtieth anniversary of the local tradition.
Smithers was named the People’s Choice Neighbourhood and Mayor of Smithers, Taylor Backrach had a bet with Stone that the loser of this contest would have to visit the other town and promote the other town’s “great street.”
Both towns won, so the bet has to be reworked.
2017 B.C. winners:
Town of Smithers – People’s Choice Neighbourhood (Main Street)
City of Coquitlam – Great Public Space (Town Centre Park)
