James Bay 2020

21‑23 Feb 2020
6pm-9:00pm

Please register or sign in to make a window.

Everyone in James Bay is invited to decorate a window in their home or business, on a balcony; even in a parked car. Then we all can grab a map and go out into the streets at night to look! 

Help us to transform our streets into an outdoor gallery for all to see and enjoy!

Click on take part at the top of this page to sign up to make a display and put your window on the map. Encourage your neighbors to do the same, maybe share a theme.

Your display can be a simple silhouette.

 Or you could go all out complete with soundtrack. 

It’s your call but please remember all displays should be family friendly.

Let’s be festive: set up a warm drink or cookie station in front of your home, invite friends, have a party!

When you wander: go as a group, bundle up, but wear something bright or reflective for safety sake.

Send pictures of your creative process to  jamesbayww@gmail.com

Have fun with it! Just remember to keep it family and pedestrian friendly.

Please register your window by February 15  to be included on the printed map. The map will be available on February 20th at New Horizons at 234 Menzies St. and the James Bay Community School Centre at 140 Oswego St.
