Chemainus does Christmas Little Town style Saturday

From 2:30 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 20, take the entire family to Chemainus for Little Town Christmas.

The fun is centered on Willow Street beside Waterwheel Park this year because North Cowichan hasn’t quite finished all its construction and beautification in the area.

There will be bands and choirs, hot dogs and hot chocolate, raffles and prizes, an inspiration art table, a fish pond and craft table, face painting, photos with Santa and goodie bags, a live nativity scene, bough decorating, a cake walk and a donut eating

contest and even a snowflake treasure hunt.

Santa will arrive about 4:20 p.m. Admission is free for kids but adults are encouraged to make a donation to help pay for the expenses of putting on the event.

Chemainus is also celebrating its Festival of Trees in a new way this year.

Trees are displayed at various sponsoring businesses around town. To find out where they are, pick up your passports at the Visitors Centre or at the Chemainus Gardens info Centre in Village Square shopping centre.

You can vote for your favourite tree and enter for draw prizes, too.
