“City sidewalks, busy sidewalks…. dressed in holiday style in the air there’s a feeling of Christmas”


Uptown is certainly dressed in holiday style and one might say the magic happens overnight.  Actually, it does. The beautiful, sparkling holiday lighting is due to the very appreciated efforts of Saint John Energy.  “The blue and white snowflakes are a joint project with some investment coming from both organizations,” says Nancy Tissington, Executive Director of Uptown Saint John Inc.


SJ Energy provides all of the installation for the uptown seasonal lighting and have been housing and managing the holiday lights infrastructure for the past number of years. “The excitement is in the air and we are thrilled to provide this to the community every year,” says Jessica DeLong, SJ Energy – Manager, Stakeholder Relations.


This year, USJI has started investing in Phase I of a new ‘tree wrapping’ initiative.  These brilliantly lit trees will remain shining throughout the year. The future phases will see expansion to other trees on King Street and Prince William Street.  Also, new this year – a glowing family of carollers installed on the 2nd level of the historic bandstand in King’s Square.  It truly is the most magical time of the year in Uptown Saint John, with all of the sparkling lights lending a memorable ambiance to this most festive and joyous season.
