Mill Bay Centre kicks off holidays

Mill Bay Centre lights up for the holiday season this Saturday.

This annual event is fun for the whole family, kicking off with Centre businesses participating in the Chili Cook-off from 2-4 p.m. Visit them all and then vote for your favourite.

There’s lots of entertainment on the outdoor stage from 3-6 p.m., too, as folks gather near the fire pit to keep warm and enjoy seasonal songs and dances as the light fades and anticipation builds.

What are they waiting for? Santa’s arrival, of course. Everyone wants to be there and see the light-up and then watch Jolly Old St. Nicholas arrive by Mill Bay fire truck at 5 p.m. After stepping down from the truck, Santa will go to Bru-Go’s Coffee shop where children can meet with him. If you want a picture of the occasion please bring your own camera.
