Candy Cane Countdown
November 28 – December 20, 2013
Over the past 20 years Candy Cane Countdown has been a vital part of how Christmas is celebrated in the Vermilion Area. For the past 10 years it has been the Candy Cane Countdown passports. These little festive brochures do double duty. First they are a handy schedule for most of the Christmas events happening in and around Vermilion. Second they are your entry form for the $2000 Candy Cane Countdown draw. As you do your Christmas shopping get your passport stamped by participating merchants. Once the passport is full, fill out your name, address, phone number, and drop it in one of the draw boxes around town. Enter as many times as you want keeping in mind the more you shop the more entries you have available and the better your chances at winning.
The much anticipated Night Light Parade is the perfect way to start the Christmas season. One of a few night light parades in Canada this parade has both children and adults bundling up and braving the cold to see all the beautifully decorated and lit-up floats pass by. The parade starts at Lakeland Mall leads to the Senior Center through the heart of Vermilion. After the parade come in out of the cold and marvel in wonder at the beautifully decorated trees setup at the Festival of Trees. This wonderful; and vital event is a recent addition to Vermilions Christmas season, but it is a definitely a destination for the whole family.
The December 6 winner was: Tannis Henderson
The December 13 winner was Cathy Klatt.
The grand prize winner was Lubie Parchewsky.
