Celebrating Community & Tradition – Lighting of the Real Tree, November 15, 2018

Downtown Camrose invites you and your family & Friends to “Celebrate Community and bring back a little bit of Tradition, the lighting of a real tree”, on Thursday, November 15, 2018. It is so important to celebrate community and what better way than helping to fill the Food Bank shelves.

It all starts in Downtown Camrose.

At 4:00 p.m. at the Station Center Mall, North end of Main Street, New Country 98.1 will be there, be sure to drop by and say hello to Ethan.

Also at 4:00 p.m., at the Lion’s Centennial Park, next to Dairy Queen, the Camrose Kodiaks will be there to accept your non-perishable food donation, sign autographs, and give some hockey tips. And I am sure they wouldn’t mind if you took a selfie. The Lion’s Club will be serving hot chocolate and hot apple cider.

Back to the Station Center Mall, you can experience the big unveil of the lighting of the real tree at 5:00 p.m.  It’s a little too early for Santa to bring his sleigh and reindeer, so our Camrose Fire Department will be giving him a ride. As we are all gathered around, after the tree is lit up, we will sing a few carols. Our local Churchmice Players will take over and continue singing around the area and down the street.

Free Hotdogs, get your free hotdogs, members of The Camrose Kinsmen will be barbequing hot dogs. And if you need to warm up, staff from The Camrose Open Door will be serving hot chocolate and hot apple cider in Aaron’s Furniture store.

Santa’s work is not done. He will be at the Brick from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Bring your children and grandchildren to visit Santa and get your picture taken courtesy of the Brick. The Brick will also be accepting non-perishable food items for the Food Bank.

At the other end of 50th (around the United Church), strolling the streets will be Performers from About Time Productions. Will they be elves or Scrooge or ???

And don’t forget to stop by and visit the unique shops all through Downtown Camrose for some early Christmas shopping; many of their doors are open till 8:00 p.m.   And if you want to grab a coffee or something to eat, there are many wonderful restaurants and coffee shops throughout.

Please join in the fun, “Celebrating Community, supporting Neighbor Aid (Food Bank) and bring a lit bit of Tradition back, the lighting of a real tree”,

Hope to see you there!

P.S. A huge thank you to Brian’s Yard Care and Tree Service and The City of Camrose for helping get the tree to downtown Camrose.
