'Tis the season once again for Kelowna's Candy Cane Lane fundraiser.

Candy Cane Lane has grown into so much more than just a festively-lit street collecting charitable donations. This event has given the neighbourhood a sense of community that is often hard to find in our busy world. Visitors can experience this same emotional connection as they share the spirit of the season with their families. The Candy Cane Lane families want to express that this feeling is what Christmas is about: friends, family, giving, appreciating and sharing moments of love and kindness.

This year's event runs December 1- January 1, from 5 pm - 10 pm daily.

Candy Cane Lane can be found along Collison and Gramiak Roads, near Gerstmar and Springfield. 

The group is accepting donations of non-perishable food items, new toiletries, hygiene products and children's toys. Items will be donated to the Kelowna Women’s shelter, Freedom’s Door, and the Okanagan Boy’s & Girl’s Club.

Last year, the Candy Cane Lane event raised over 9,000 pounds of food, and the goal is to do even better this year.
