The City of Surrey always hosts fantastic seasonal festivals and the next one on the calendar is the Surrey Tree Lighting Festival on Saturday, November 22nd. Moving this year from the Central City Plaza over to the new City Hall Plaza across the street, the event will have a full lineup of activities and performers including headliner Alyssa Reid.
