A Stratford festival is ending early as Ontario goes through another state-of-emergency and a stay at home order.

Organizers behind Lights On Stratford say due to the situation the winter lights festival can’t stay open and it’s wrapping up earlier than expected.

They say plans are underway for next year’s festival and they say it will be brilliant.

As a sign of Stratford’s perseverance, creativity and for better days ahead, they say the Hope sign will remain lit in Market Square.
