  • Autism Ontario - Thunder Bay & District Chapter

This event can only take place with the continued support of the Thunder Bay Trucking Community, through companies and people like you.

Autism Ontario - Thunder Bay & District Chapter, George Jeffrey Children’s Centre, Special Olympics - Thunder Bay & Thunder Bay Therapeutic Riding Association children, youth, and young adults benefit from both the donations and the increased awareness the Parade of Lights brings to their causes.

We are very excited to be offering a sensory-friendly area for a second year. Drivers have been instructed that all music & horn honking be stopped in this area. See Parade Route map for location.

It is clear that the Parade of Lights has turned into a magical evening, a seasonal favourite among young and old alike. Thousands line the streets for an opportunity to be part of the excitement and they truly appreciate the efforts of each entrant in the Parade of Lights.

Ensuring Public Safety and Earning Your Trust

County Connections Cook County Sheriff Pat Eliasen

COOK COUNTRY, MINNESOTA June 20, 2020  (LSN) What is Community-Based Policing? According to Everbridge, "Community-Based Policing is generally defined as a law enforcement philosophy that allows officers to continuously operate in the same area to create a stronger bond with the citizens living and working in that area. This allows public safety officers to engage with residents and prevent crime from happening instead of responding to incidents after they occur."
