The city of Brandon's Winter Fall of Lights program got underway yesterday.
Acting Director of Community Services Perry Roque says they hope to open the skating oval by next Friday as well.
He describes the area which is off of 18th street near the Assiniboine River.
Roque adds visitors can check out the lights by driving along the river or by using the city's walking paths that run right through it.
New this year to the skating oval is a canteen which they hope to open by Christmas and additional fire pits.
