Morinville’s Lite Up the Nite Festival in photos

Mild weather added to the overall success of this past weekend’s Lite Up the Nite Festival as Morinville and area residents came out for the activities during the day as well as the annual parade, park lighting and fireworks display. Below are some photos we captured over the weekend.
