Snow would have been the icing on the cake last Thursday. But amid
the sprinkles but there were lots of twinkles and families' holiday
sprits weren't dampened at a ceremonial tree-lighting Charlie Brown
would be envious over. The event was hosted by the Downtown Business
Improvement Association (DBIA) at Salish Park Thursday.
holiday season, the Coast Hotel, local merchants, the Chamber of
Commerce and the DBIA consolidate efforts to add some Yule downtown
and the park looks more radiant than ever and is definably a place
you won't want to miss on your Christmas light tour.
What would a Christmas event be without the man in
the red suit? Kids lined up to see him up close and personal.
Remember the old Woodwards building in Vancouver and how you loved
to go through the windows looking with meticulous curiosity and in
wide-eyed wonderment at all the moving displays? For many years it
was a Christmas staple.
This year, as in previous years, Chilliwack business' are adding
some extra pizzazz to storefronts. City crews put up the lights last
week. Streets like Wellington Ave. will look like big presents as
participating merchants vie for the best Yule storefront display in
the DBIA's "Downtown Window Decorating Contest."
Kyle Williams, executive
director Chilliwack Business Association was adorned with a light
necklace. Below, acting mayor long-time councillor Sue Attrill.
All you need to do to show your support is stop by a business with
your favourite storefront December 2-21 and vote. Don't forget to
watch for stores for some great deals.
