Candy Cane Countdown
Celebrate the Christmas season with Candy Cane Countdown
November 27-December 19
The Night Light Parade is one of our favourite ways to celebrate the holiday season. We are fortunate to have one of only a few night light parades in Canada. Enjoy the enchantingly decorated floats with your family on Thursday, November 27. The parade begins at 7:00 p.m. at Lakeland Mall, curving through the downtown core on its way to the Senior Citizen’s Centre. After the parade, come in from the cold to enjoy the 5th Annual Festival of Trees. All proceeds from the Festival of Trees support local charities such as Santa’s Anonymous.
Another great way to support Santa’s Anonymous is the Tree Buddy program. Participating merchants will have trees with tags stating the age range of a boy or girl. Attach the tag to an appropriate gift to donate. Your donation can make a little boy or girl’s Christmas magical this year.
In addition to listing local holiday events, the Candy Cane Countdown Shopper’s Passport is your entry form for a $2000 draw. Local participating merchants will stamp your passport as you do your holiday shopping. Drop your completed passport into one of the draw boxes around town. Need some motivation to get your shopping started? December 6th & 13th are early bird draws for $250 Chamber Bucks. Do you need to buy a big-ticket item? December 5th & 12th are double stamp days. The more you shop, the higher your chances to win of the draws. Just one of the many benefits of shopping local!
The December 6 winner was: Tannis Henderson
The December 13 winner was Cathy Klatt.
The grand prize winner was Lubie Parchewsky.
