Light Up The Night

Isle of Skye Productions takes an active role in the community to co ordinate as well as sponsor special events. The special events area of the Isle of Skye Productions portfolio began when singer/songwriter Robin Moir was asked to co ordinate talent for CBC television's CHEO telethon and subsequently the Heart Institute Telethon in the early 1990's. Through her many music industry contacts Robin was able to help create television specials with tremendous Canadian talent on board; talent like Alanis, Wayne Rostad, The Five Man Electrical Band, Rich Little and many more.

For the past ten years Robin has worked with host Wayne Rostad and a committed team to put together an enchanting Christmas concert held outdoors on the main street of Almonte, Ontario called … Light Up The Night.

Traditionally held on the first Friday in December, Light Up The Night draws more than 7000 people from all across the Ottawa Valley to ring in the Christmas season. The town of Mississippi Mills and local area merchants are always solidly behind this annual event…and light up the stores all along the street.

Wayne's continued support of the event has led to its phenomenal success throughout the area. This past year was no exception …in spite of severe weather during the day, the Christmas Spirit could not be denied, and Light Up The Night was as Christmassy as ever!

Host Wayne Rostad was joined by his wife, CTV host, Leanne Cusack and together they welcomed Voices of Praise, The Bowes Brothers, Alex Ryder, Lauren Hall, Braiden Turner and the Almonte Music Academy Youth Choir …and of course the Twinkle Fairies who with a wave of their wands …brought Santa and Mrs. Claus down to the Light Up The Night stage!

Join us this year in Almonte, Ontario – December the 7th at 7:00 PM for:
Light Up the Night with Wayne Rostad and Friends!
