Heart of Mississauga to be lit up with Christmas lights
Published November 11, 2021 at 3:53 pm
Celebration Square isn’t the only public space in Mississauga that will be lit up with Christmas lights this holiday season.
In addition to other spots across the city, what many consider to be the heart of Mississauga—the Cooksville “four corners”—will for the first time be decorated with a presentation of lights, said Ward 7 City Councillor Dipika Damerla, who represents the Hurontario and Dundas Sts. area and beyond.
“For the first time ever, the Cooksville four corners…will have Christmas lighting, courtesy of the new (Cooksville) BIA,” said Damerla, adding a virtual “flicking of the lights” ceremony will be held on Nov. 26 from 6-7 p.m. “There’s a small parkette there, I think many people are familiar with, and it has some trees. It’s all going to be lit up.”
Damerla said she’ll reveal more details soon, specifically related to the Nov. 26 virtual ceremony.
“It’s quite historic, and it’s a big step for the BIA…congratulations to the BIA for making this happen,” she added.
The City of Mississauga announced this week that it will once again host its Light up the Square event, a five-week festival of lights that kicks off Nov. 27 with the ceremonial lighting of the 40-foot Christmas tree at Celebration Square.
