Light Up High River: Halloween Edition

October brings longer nights and shorter days,
The perfect invitation, some might say,
for ghosts, ghouls and gremlins to come out and play.

What is Light Up?

Light Up: Halloween Edition was inspired by the Christmas Light Up contest and became part of the High River Parades and Lights Society family. High River boasts an incredible number of Halloween enthusiasts - both residents and businesses - who create the most incredible displays each year. We would like to recognize those who lift the spirits of the community each year and help as many people as possible see their handiwork.
