Christmas Light Up 2012

The most amazing 2012 Christmas Light up Weekend is being planned for Keremeos and of course Similkameen Country will be starting the celebrations with our Annual Christmas Parade December 7th, 5:30 p.m.  After the parade the children can see Santa at the Victory Hall and enjoy hot chocolate,  hot dogs, popcorn and candy floss.     Attached is an application form and information on the prizes that can be won for an entry into our parade.  These entry forms can also be picked up at Similkameen Agencies and the Information Centre.   Please consider putting  an entry into the parade.  There are nine categories that you can enter under and have a chance to win a  prize for each category.   You  have three weeks to plan an entry for this event.  A parade is a wonderful way to advertise a business and to bring  Christmas  to the Lower Similkameen Valley.  This years theme is “Candy Cane Lane”. Our craft fair  opening Dec 7th 3 pm – 8  and then again Dec 8th 10 am – 3 pm is almost booked up with vendors.  There might still be time to apply so contact the information centre 250-499-5225  or the Chair of this event Janet Tizzard 250-499-7887 for a table.
