Downtown Truro will be glowing with community spirit this winter. More than 25,000 lights are installed in trees in and around Civic Square to create a magical atmosphere aiming to attract visitors to the downtown area throughout the winter months.
The lights are a new addition to the Truro Winter Long John Festival, and a three-way partnership between the Truro & Colchester Chamber of Commerce, the Town of Truro, and the Downtown Truro Partnership.
Come down to Downtown Truro and immerse yourself in this Winter Wonderland!

How Local Organizations Can Get Involved

Johnny Long John Scavenger Hunt

We are inviting all businesses and organizations in Downtown Truro to participate in a Johnny Long John Scavenger Hunt as a hunt location. Businesses that sign up will be included as a stop on the festival website for participants, and we will provide you with a window poster to indicate that you are a scavenger hunt stop, as well as a postcard to hide somewhere in your business that features Johnny Long John participating in a winter activity. People will come to your business to find out what Johnny is doing in your location for a chance to win Downtown Dollars. The scavenger hunt will take place from February 10 – February 28, 2023. If you would like to sign up as a location participating in the Johnny Long John Scavenger Hunt, please email
