Little Town Christmas this Saturday in Chemainus may take you back a few years

Chemainus is putting on an old-fashioned family celebration Sat, Dec. 15 from 3-6 p.m. at Waterwheel Park.

For the sixth year, a dedicated corps of volunteers in Chemainus is putting on Little Town Christmas, an old-fashioned family celebration with all the fellowship, fun and excitement of the season.

In fact, the Chemainus celebration this Saturday (Dec. 15) may take you back a few years.

“We’re all about old-fashioned values and making sure everyone can enjoy themselves without breaking the bank,” promises Little Town Christmas chair Robyn Gerland. “All our events are by donation, thanks to the generosity of local organizations like the Rotary, Legion, Eagles and many, many businesses.

“As well, we’ve got a tremendous group of volunteers who run the games, crafts, events and other activities, as well as sell raffle tickets and help us raise funds to put on Little Town Christmas.”

Gerland says the fun begins at 3 p.m. in Waterwheel Park and will continue until about 6 p.m.

“Santa arrives at 4:30 p.m. and that will certainly be a highlight, but there’s entertainment, games, a fish pond, hockey shoot-out, a cake walk, live nativity scene and so much more going on,” she added.

There will be hot dogs and hot chocolate, music and a chance for youngsters to have their photo taken with Santa.

This year’s Little Town Christmas will feature some very special musical performances, according to  Gerland.

“We’ll have performances by the Concenti Singers, the Calvary Baptist Church Choir, St. Joseph’s Choir and several others,” she said. “The music will be fantastic.”
